No problem - I know this kind of situation :-)

It depends on the JCR product. Eg. Jackrabbit offers the possibility
to store the content  in a RDBMS or a file system (or ... what you
want). The JCR API makes abstraction on the persistent store type.
Futhermore, the JCR model is so generic that you can store any kind of
content. So, if you use a db backend, it is not necessary to add new
tables in order to support other kind of content.

Correct, when you define the model you can apply version control only
on specific objects (content). Version control is not mandatory for
the entire model

Yes it is.  By default our solution uses Jackrabbit which offer this
kind of features.
This week,  I'm reviewing the Graffito doc and try to add more
information on our JCR works.

I advise you to review the Jacrabbit site, there are more and more
