We don't have any specific plan but that looks like a nice feature to
start contributing. It's fairly focused. The only hard part is that you
will probably need to involve the metamodel which is being changed
between 4.x and 5.

I currently use the hibernate.hbm2ddl.auto property with a value of create.
While this setting is very convenient for some entities, I also have an
entity that is not going to change (i.e. reference data such as postcodes)
and that contains some data that I would like to keep across restarts of
the app server (i.e. Tomcat).
I am seeking for a way to tell hibernate/JPA not to touch this entity/table
whatever the value of thehibernate.hbm2ddl.auto property.
Is it possible to configure the value of this property at the level of an
entity and therefore override the overall behavior for a specific entity?
This would be a wonderful feature for entities that represent reference
Please let me know if you are planning on implementing such a feature in
upcoming versions of Hiberrnate/EntityManager.
