[hibernate-dev] Is @SecondaryTable required when a join table is

I noticed that org.hibernate.test.annotations.onetoone.OneToOneTest and OptionalOneToOnePKJCTest uses this mapping:

Son.father specifies a join-table ("father_son"), but has no <secondary-table>. There is no @SecondaryTable defined in Son (this is a unidirectional association).

I thought that @SecondaryTable was required when an association uses a join table. Currently, that's how it works in the new metamodel.

Should it be optional?
