This is not difficult to build new services to manage specific content
like articles, news, ...  I have something for a news management but
I'm too busy to review it in details. We can work together on that.

Graffito fit to your needs (if you are agree to develop new components).
Again I can help. this is not an important work.

Yes, I'm using graffito on customer site. It is a Struts web
application running on is a specific document management and
publication system for an important european institution.

Unfortunatly, you have to defined your own user interface if you want
to use Graffito in standalone mode. I'm very amazing by the GWT web
framework and I think it is should be nice to have some Graffito & JCR
UI components for this one.
Right now, it is difficult to support all existing web framework.
