Add "real" boolean field-type to Dataverse/ CDS

The yes/no-field type in dataverse is an option set and it's quite difficult to deal with those in PowerApps. Would be great if one could simply set the value of a yes/no field to true or false.

This is causing me issues as well as the yes/no column is difficult to handle in Power Apps. The data type is not recognized as boolean or text in Power Apps, making it useless in some cases. I have reverted to using a text column in Dataverse as a work-around, which is uncontrolled in Dataverse and prone to user entry error. It seems it would be very simple to add an actual boolean column type to Dataverse, or add the functionality to Power Apps to recognize the yes/no type as boolean (even better!)
