I thought I heard of an engine control value that would prevent a driver from setting/using associations.

I've found the "write pending associations" value, but that's not what we want. We're working with a B2C solution with millions of objects and therefore won't be using associations because of the overhead.

Is there a way to prevent setting associations or do we just strip them in the policies? That works fine for adds, but a modify seems to set the association no matter what you do. I could add a remove-associations command to remove the association that is set on a modify, but I'd rather not set the association in the first place so I don't have to write it and remove it. Comments?
