Hibernate version: 1.2.0.Alpha2

The test hbm
Code:
   <class name="NHb.DomainModel.Person, NHb.DomainModel" table="Persons" lazy="false">
      <id column="ID" name="_id" type="Int64" access="field">
         <generator class="sequence" >
            <param name="sequence">P_OID</param>
         </generator>
      </id>
      <property name="Name" column="PName" type="string" length="50" access="property"/>
      <bag name="Addresses" table="PERSON_ADDRESS" lazy="false">
         <key column="PERSONID"/>
         <many-to-many class="NHb.DomainModel.Address, NHb.DomainModel"/>
      </bag>
   </class>


the test class
Code:
  public class Person
  {
    public Person()
      : base()
    {
      _name = string.Empty;
    }
    private long _id;

    public long Id
    {
      get { return _id; }
      set { _id = value; }
    }
   
    private string _name;
    public string Name
    {
      get { return _name; }
      set { _name = value; }
    }

    private IList _addresses = new ArrayList();
    public IList Addresses
    {
      get { return _addresses; }
      set { _addresses = value; }
    }      
  }


When i load one instance of Person NHb create the collection Addresses with the concrete class NHibernate.Collection.PersistentBag so if i expose the collection Addresses (like the test) what kind of disaster can made a user of my class?

The user of my class can write something like this:
Code:
NHibernate.Collection.PersistentBag pb = personInstance.Addresses as NHibernate.Collection.PersistentBag;
if (pb != null)
{// this code will come executed
  pb.ForceInitialization();
  pb.Read();
  pb.ReadFrom(...)
  }


Wich is the best practies to work with collection?
We must use a wrapper every where?

Thanks.
