Enh. Req.: Please support content id referencing in sap.ui.model.odata.v2.ODataModel.create/createEntry, etc. #978
+1 for this! Also, this SCN article series by Kenichi Unnai is a great source of information: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-70603
Content-ID is a standard in the OData Spec. Not having support for this can lead to nasty UI5 code and issues related to "transaction security" (LUW, "all or nothing,...").
Furthermore, I'd love to see this working also for file uploads using the FileUploader, see http://scn.sap.com/thread/3899879
The Content-ID is set as a header. This does not quite confirm to the official V2 OData specification, but as long as your service could handle this Content-ID header it should work.
createEntry doesn't work. We have no plans to add this feature to the v2.ODataModel.
