This feature will allow for easy consumption of WebAPI exposed data via our ODataDataSource. It should be fully configurable from the design time wizard.

Thank you for pointing this out. What we want to to the OdataSource is a design-time support for consuming WebAPI services and easy integration (read without writing code) with our existing components. It is great that Microsoft have decided to enable OData format for WebAPI services. This will greatly simplify the things :)

This sounds like Telerik is taking responsibility of the data format passed in to our DataSource component. Microsoft is currently working on a plug-in for WebAPI to fully support OData.
