Serialization support of DataSourceRequest and applying outside of ASP.NET MVC
Just like posted here (and declined) :

I would like to see a portable separate assembly that : 
- can be referenced both on ASP.NET MVC side and WCF server side.
- A DataSourceRequest and DataSourceResult class that serialize well in both SOAP and REST WCF.

Referencing Kendo from the Application server side also requires references to System.Web.Mvc, Razor pages, ... and others that shouldn't be necessary.

I'm in the process of creating a set of extension method for DataSourceRequest that will transform the request into a URI which can then be used to call a backend service from any .NET standard 1.6 client; I'm also looking at breaking out the DataSourceRequest and DataSourceResult into a separate assembly to give a light weight assembly for these DTO types etc. 

I honestly don't know why Progress/Telerik have opted for a single assembly inside of breaking these out to allowing sharing of DTOs across services/layer/components ?
