ORM meaning Object Repository Mapping, right ;)?

well, i think there are many application that that would requiry explicit
or implicit versioning of the data. in my mind the reason why versioning
is not taken into account in classical orm solutions is really because
both rdbmses and pojos do not directly address this issue.

i would personally would like to see this as possibily "an aspect" of an 
object, to add the explicit versioning capabilities. so to me it would be 
an extension to current orm solutions...

right, and inheritance (with mixins possibly "aspects"?) ;)

since i have absolutely no experience with orm i am probably
way out here ;)
