most JCR implementations will probably be remote clients communicating 
with a server, i.e. method calls can fail for a number of reasons
(network failure etc).
that's why most methods throw RepositoryException.  

btw: the concept of the JCR api is very similar to the concept of JDBC
and AFAIK every JDBC method throws SQLException...
