Allow changing of data types in CDS where there is no data loss

There are times when we create a custom entity in the Common Data Service and later need to change the data type. For instance, I had a field that was an ID so I made it an integer. But later I needed to change this to a text field. Converting from an integer to text should result in no data loss. But when I attempt this, it tells me I cannot change the data type.
Please allow changing field types where they can be easily converted and wouldn't result in data loss.
