It will close the gab between C# and database. Both will be able to deal with nullable and non-nullable types (as they already can for the C# value types). I.E. fewer hidden traps. So once the code is updated you will know if something can be null right from the types in your C# code, and your compiler will be able to point out you are an idiot, instead of having to run the code to learn it the hard way. Smile | :)

Of course it will require a code change to update any existing C# entities.... just as you need to update the rest of the code.

I do not think of enabling nullable check as "enable some more warnings". I see it as a late attempt to fix what I can only describe as a huge mistake in the C# type system. Splitting nullable off from the type just as databases did decades ago (well... Oracle did it wrong for strings, but still).

Unfortunately it comes so late it still needs to live with the crappy code that isn't using nullable checks - so you will still need to throw ArgumentNullException from public types.
