Validate Entities in Model

#1
I am trying to validate Entity by calling Model->validate( Entities\Promocodes $promo ).
But It looks like `Model->validate( Array $promo )` is the only option for this?

I have an Entitiy class:

PHP Code:
namespace App\Entities;
use 
CodeIgniter\Entity;
use 
App\Models\PromocodesModel;

class 
Promocodes extends Entity
{
// Anything else here is empty, no need for that, right?



And I have a model with validation rules. Which works great, if I pass an Array to it.
But it will always return true, if I pass Entities class Object.

Model with validation rules:

PHP Code:
namespace App\Models;

use 
CodeIgniter\Database\ConnectionInterface;
use 
CodeIgniter\Model;
use 
CodeIgniter\Validation\ValidationInterface;
use 
Config\Services;


class 
PromocodesModel extends Model
{
    protected $table 'promo_codes';
    protected $primaryKey 'id';
    protected $returnType Promocodes::class;
    protected $useSoftDeletes true;

    protected $allowedFields = [
        'code',
        'valid_from',
        'valid_to',
    ];

    protected $useTimestamps true;

    // These are validation rules !!! min Length: 3 !
    protected $validationRules    = [
        'code'     => 'required|is_unique[promo_codes.code]|alpha_numeric_space|min_length[3]',
    ]; 


This will  return false, as expected:

PHP Code:
model('PromocodesModel')->validate(['code'=> 'a']); // min length must be 3! 


The problem

PHP Code:
// Validating Entities object Will ALWAYS return TRUE! 
model('PromocodesModel')->validate(new Entities\Promocodes(['code' => 'aa']));

// Will NOT insert/save values. 
model('PromocodesModel')->save(new Entities\Promocodes(['code' => 'aa'])); 


I understand, that passing Entities Object to Model may not be possible by design. But this is confusing in that case, because it should not return True anyway!


I have workaround by always using Array for data fill, validate, but I would like to know, if there is sych Entities validation available, or this should be posted as feature request?
