Sounds fine with me.

I am not sure if you are referring to the performance penalties in the
current jackrabbit implementation with a large number of direct child
nodes. I want to be clear though that JCR does not have any limitation
or performance penalty with a large number of direct child nodes.

I agree that using JPA annotations would help existing JPA
based applications... I don't think it would be too complex to use
(possibly a subset of) JPA annotations in addition.

I am convinced that the JCROM project would be happy to receive a patch
...after all it is an opensource project ;)
