I think Jackrabbit is too young for such issues. 
ORM doesn't work at all in a version that a have checked out two weeks ago.
It is interesting to have a look at db schemas in orm contribution.
There we can see a rather common approch of mapping xml-structured data to strict static set
of tables.

So general implementation should do DDL for definition of new nodetypes and mixins.
I think it is rather difficult. But interesting.

All the best,
