[hibernate-dev] Annotations to separate package?

We've just migrated some of our products from Hibernate 3 to Hibernate 4. We ran into some problems because Envers is now automatically starting when it is on the classpath. I think this is a really nice feature, however in our case most of our products need Envers on the classpath even though only some product are actually using Envers. This is because we have made a common data model which is used by most of our products, some of these model classes have @Audited annotations, so Envers is required on the classpath.
We now explicitly turned of Envers in products where it is not needed, but it would be nice if there was a separate jar containing only the annotations. Not exclusively for Envers, but a jar containing all Hibernate annotations.
Do you guys think this is a good idea?
