Make it easier to bind to Entity objects

Author Name: Nick Whymark

At the moment when you do a query via the soap service (using dynamic entities) the Entity type returned contains CRM specific property types such as EntityReference, AliasedValue, OptionSetValue etc etc.

This makes binding impossible without first converting to a bindable (internal) type.

I think it should be changed so that Entity properties only consist of CLR types which would make it easy to bind.

Any additional information provided by these types should either be under a specific entity property or somewhere else in the message returned.

When I say "impossible" I really mean "difficult" or "complicated" ;o)
