  /**
   * <p>Pluggable strategy determines whether introspection or bind time
   * typing should be used when finding mappings.
   * The type of a property is determined at introspection time but
   * the actual type of the instance can differ at bind time (when the 
   * xml is actually being processed). This strategy is used to set
   * (at a per-element level) whether the bind or introspection
   * time type should be used to calculate the mapping to be used.
   * </p>
   * <p>
   * <strong>Note:</strong> this strategy is intentionally course.
   * Typically, the best approach is to use a custom strategy to set
   * coursely grained rules (for example: all implemetations of 'IAnimal'
   * use bind time type mapping) and then dot betwixt files to provide
   * refinements.
