I agree with most of these ideas. Unfortunately, I don't think that the current status is
enough to promote it. On a side note, before promoting it, I really think that the package
should be address. Probably in many cases CMS + JCR with portals makes sense, however JCR
can be used in many more scenarios. And I can tell you for sure that the first question when

promoting it would be: "why is it portals?"

I am reviewing right now the collection converters and fixing the exception handling. After
step, and some small refactorings in the filters, I will be ready for interfaces/inheritance.
those are done, or at least addressed we should start promoting it.
