Is it possible to use an existing datacontracts in the designer, or do I have to create them from scratch?
For example, the Entity Framework generated classes are datacontract by default, and it would be very useful to use them as is in the WSSF. Is it possible?

For the time being there is no support for "round tripping" in WSSF:ME, that is you may not import a DC from an existing DataContract in code. However, you can check the Extensibility Hands-on lab (Ex#11,12) that describes how to make/add an Import/Export functionality into your models.
