Remarks

Having the entity key of the related object available on the EntityReference object makes it easier to return information about the related object without having to load it from the data source.

Exposing the EntityKey of the related object on the EntityReference object also enables Object Service to dynamically create an association between two attached objects and delete an object without having to load the related ends. For more information, see Creating, Adding, Modifying, and Deleting Objects.
