Enable entity queries by Entity Logical Name instead of Collection

Author Name: Joe Newstrom
It would be incredibly helpful to be able to directly query entity collections by using the entity logical name rather than a fixed pluralized entity collection name.
Since the entity logical name is passed to the form for lookup controls, it is much more modular to use ELN for Web API queries than to have to hard code collection names or build a metadata query to find the collection name by ELN. This would also be the case with plugins; if you want to target an entity whose ELN won't be known at design time, you could build a query that would pull the ELN at runtime and then run the query. Metadata queries are more complicated and add additional steps/latency to the execution.
