Wouldn’t an additional explicit @FieldBridge annotation work as well?
Yes! But we'd need to apply it to the key type.
This implies changing it to allow target @Target(TYPE), which doesn't make
much sense for our ORM users, but also the name "FieldBridge" is rather odd
to be applied on a type and not a field.
