> We currently prohibit the use of eq, ne with binary and geo values, as these values are typically not comparable.
> However, it is valid to compare these values to null. This is handled in database systems, for example, by having "is null" and "is not null" operators, but since in OData we decided (after long debate) to use "eq null" and "ne null" to compare to null values (with appropriate null propagation rules) we inadvertently disallowed the common and useful case of comparing binary and geo values to null.
