The JCR module part of Spring Modules is about working with the JCR API
in a Spring manner - i.e. having exception translation, template, a
sessionFactory. Another big incentive for it was the transaction
management build on top of Spring transaction infrastructure.

I think a mapping tool for JCR would be a very useful tool and I'd be
glad to support it inside Spring Modules (I'm not sure if it makes sense
to move it there). However, I think it's really premature to discuss
such issue before the tool is finalized.

As for my opinions about the JCR mapping - they were/are not the reason
why there isn't support for JCR mapping (it actually is inside the
sandbox). From what I've seen the project is in very early stages, there
are a lot of changes and keeping up with it, is just too much work.
Christophe and I talked some time ago about some patches which would be
contributed to Spring Modules to reflect the latest changes - something
that I welcome.
