So in my application, I know that the state of the non primitives will 
not be changing. All I need OpenJPA to do is extract the value of the 
non-primitive once when it is creating its insert statement.

I have already set this property, and it allows me to close the entity 
manager much faster because it does not bother detaching the proxies, 
but it still attaches proxies during commit, so commit does not run any
