FYI, coincidentally I was looking at Java 7 adoption for JBoss Tools users and currently
that is at ~24% out ouf ~730.000 starts the last month.
Plus Java 7 is not very stable for anything that has do with graphical rendering on either
OSX and Linux OpenJDK - so it would currently
be a shame if Hibernate would require it yet IMO.

sense. Java 6 is not even EOL yet (close, yes).
The only 1.7 source requirement as I understand it is that jaxb
"required" thing that you added.
We do currently need *javac* from 1.7 to compile master (and metamodel
since we are merging master into it) but that is due to a bug in the 1.6
javac (see earlier email to the dev list). But there is actually
nothing there that is not 1.6 compatible in either source nor bytecode.
