For dev@j.a.o, see

I wouldn't say "indistinguishable". The Jackrabbit project produces an
implementation of the JCR API as well as a collection of JCR-related
tools. All these components are part of Jackrabbit, but certainly
distinguishable from each other.

I think you're confusing things here. A client application (like your
EMF project) would generally want to depend on the JCR API or a tool
based on the API (like JCR mapping) instead of a specific
implementation of the API. So you'd want a compile-time dependency on
"jcr" or "jackrabbit-jcr-mapping" instead of "jackrabbit-core".

I don't see any functional changes being introduced if the JCR mapping
tool is to move from Graffito to Jackrabbit.
