Not sure how long it has been up there - since some time in August I guess - but MySQL.org now hosts a beta download of their data provider for .NET which means that we don't have to worry about using their ODBC connector and the ODBC .NET provider. This is hopefully a later build of the ByteFx data provider for MySQL which has been around for a while. By the looks of things, Monty has done the wise thing and brought ByteFX into the fold to make it official. Good show.
