What do you exactly mean "hardcoded"?
"OFPStats" class can compose the arbitrary flow stats fields which are defined 
in OpneFlow 1.5.
And the API is similar to OFPMatch.

For example, if you want to send the OFPIT_STAT_TRIGGER instruction with the 
PERIODIC flag and
packet_count=100 in the stats field:
    instructions = [

BTW, unfortunately we haven't found the switch implementation which fully 
supports OpenFlow 1.5
including EXT-335.
Do you know or have any implementation for supporting OpenFlow 1.5?
