I'll raise a JIRA but having thought about the original issue (root class not 
detachable) and my proposed solution (adding a method jdoGetDetachedState() 
to all enhanced classes) it likely needs a change. We already use jdoGetXXX() 
for accessors to all fields of the users class, consequently it would be 
better to avoid adding a method with a name like that. So what I propose is

Root class be enhanced with the following method

public final boolean jdoIsDetached()
    return jdoIsDetachedInternal();

and if a class is Detachable it also gains the following method
protected boolean jdoIsDetachedInternal()
    if (jdoStateManager == null)
        if (jdoDetachedState == null)
            return false;
        return true;
    return false;

and if a class is not Detachable it gains the following method
protected boolean jdoIsDetachedInternal()
    return false;

This would then cater for the root class not being Detachable, and 
subclass(es) being Detachable. An alternative would be to change the 
signature of PersistenceCapable.jdoIsDetached to not be final, though maybe 
we want to avoid that?
