According to JPA 2.0 specification section 184.108.40.206, when merging a
detached entity with lazy associations that haven't been fetched:
The persistence provider must not merge fields marked LAZY that have not
been fetched: it must ignore such fields when merging.
After merging an entity, will accessing one of the entities LAZY fields
(that was previously not fetched) result in a lazy initialization error
or will we try to fetch from the database?
