even better, there is a concept of version-graph branches and merges
in the jsr-170 spec. as a graphic example you can go to 
http://jcr.day.com and choose a versionable node and click the "versions"
for a quick example of a "version graph" check this out....

merge, update, clone bring existing nodes into a 
since workspace management & creation as 
"repository admin tasks" are not specified in 
jsr-170, it is up to the repository to eg. provide 
"tag-based"-workspaces, that dynamically
populate the workspace with nodes from a repository.
[the basic mechanics should be provided with the
above methods though...]
this is most certainly something that would be a 
welcome extension to jackrabbit.

standardize your content-repository !
