see the J2 security doc to get all the details
Remember that this security service can be run outside J2.

Anyway I'm open to see together how we can support other kind of
integration (with other security services/solution).

Yes  but some refactoring is required. The security services are not
well defined.

The current solution is not correct if the security is defined at the
repository level.

Correct.  JSR170 is focusing only on the repository aspect. This is
not a complete CMS/DM solution. Other services are still necessary
(eg. workflow).
We plan to add more and more services (scheduler, workflow,
replication, ...)  but that's the future :-)

The Graffito services are running in a Spring container (see in components).
If you want to use OCM outside the complete Graffito stack, you can
run it in a Spring container (see in jcr/spring).

why not ?
maybe later will depend on the community ;-)

In the portlets (instead of jsp).
