regarding pluggable authorization:
i am currently working on a configurable access manager
which i'm hopefully able to commit today or tomorrow.

regarding pluggable authentication:
i am not sure if i understand you correctly. are you talking of 
configuring the LoginModule in repository.xml instead of making 
use of the standard JAAS configuration mechanism?

or are you talking of a custom, non-JAAS authentication mechanism?
in that case i would prefer using standard JAAS authentication
(i.e. LoginModule) only. either way, it's eventually a configuration issue.
you have to configure it either in a jaas.config or in repository.xml.
i don't see a benefit in having also the latter option.
