I may be a bit slow today, but what is the purpose of the value 
attribute ? Wouldn't it suffice to add a boolean property to the 
field-descriptor that denotes the 'ojbConcreteClass' field, e.g. a 
'defines-concrete-class' property ?
Also, please add at least a deprecation warning (log.warn or higher) 
when encountering a magic name 'ojbConcreteClass' so that users will 
actually switch to the new structure.
