Thanks again for a great initiative.

I've been working with your Kit for quite some time now, and some of the most tedious work is build the Design Data when having many entities.

It would be a very useful extention to the current solution if we were able to add all design data to one single XML (or XAML) file, and read it back into the DataService using a generic designdata reader of some form.

Maybe it's possible to borrow some of the concepts currently used in the d:datacontext features in Blend.

This is a great idea.  Actually I've been thinking about this for a while now, and I will definately add something to simplify the creation of design data, but I'm not positive just what it will be just yet.  Serializing data out to xml is definately high on my list of ideas / concepts.
