Introduce a configuration flag to skip processing of XML mapping metadata

Description

I'd like to introduce a AvailableSettings.XML_MAPPING_ENABLED configuration property which - when disabled skips processing all XML mapping.

Using annotations is a popular solution nowadays, and having the option to looking for any XML mapping has a good impact on bootstrap times.
