dbgeography better support
Support of DBGeography is limited to EF. I tryed to use SQLDatasource and some of classic ASP.NET Webform Data controls and it seems that asp.Parameter have no fitting type. Also direct casting in inserting Event doesnt work. As I have seen also on other places there is *no* Support for the datatype which have been introduced with SQL 2008. As example sql2linq.
The point is, to prevent a complete new implementation only for reason to add one db field
Is this still an issue that we would like to address? With only 2 votes, we're considering closing it as "declined"

This should also include support for any .NET CLR datatypes in SQL Server, including HierarchyID (as I've recently discovered isn't supported natively in EF).
