Chapter 9 of Atom and JSON only talked about entities and forgot to mention complex type instances
The public comment [c201307e00000](https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/odata-comment/201307/msg00000.html) with title "Are Edm.Stream properties supported in complex types?" states:
Section 9 of CSDL doc states that:
"A complex type can define two types of properties. A structural property is a named reference to a primitive, complex, or enumeration type, or a collection of primitive, complex, or enumeration types. A navigation property is a named reference to an entity type or a collection of entity types..."
Section 4.4 of the same documents includes Edm.Stream into Primitive Types.
But section 9 of Atom format doc states that:
"An entity MAY have one or more stream properties (for example, a photo property of an employee entity). Properties that represent streams have a type of Edm.Stream."
That does not mention complex types.
Could you clarify wheter complex types support Edm.Stream properties?
Personally, I would like that feature, an I don't think there is any trouble with it, Complex types support Navigation Properties already.
