i want to know why the identity is initialed to -1 in the default constructor and set the property 'unsaved-value' to -1?
why not 0?
Don't tell me it is personal preference?

Well, this is from the time that you had to explicitly set the 'unsaved-value'. At that time I thought it was more clear to use -1 as unsaved-indicator. Nowadays it's just extra work, I agree.
