Subject Re: Raw mode

Nice idea, from my POV.
This could also solve the problem of restoring a version history backup, 
or all "protected" values related problems.

But of course, it would go against the initial JSR-170 spec.

This point actually highlights the lack of administrative API in JR, 
doesn't it ?
It may be the right time to think to such an API ?
