Object Relational Mapping

Just a design question
I have a flat table with foreign keys for columns to other static data tables and this flat table will be used for reporting and will be populated by a save using hibernate
Now in terms of the hibernate file I am thinking whether we need to include all the foreign key mapping in the xml file or just have the flat column mappings.
1. If we have to include the foreign key values in the map what value does it provide?
2. If we just include no foreign keys in the xml what are the disadvantages if any?
Your reply is much appreciated
