Yes, I've read the spec draft, but the sections on access control
policies (6.11.2) is very generic, leaving a lot to be desired by the
different implementations (as I suspect you know :). Allthough I
prefer writing as much as possible by the spec, the feature I need
(limiting child node access) is a must-have. I guess the chances of
that feature being included in the JSR are pretty slim?

OK, that's fine. I suppose the o.a.j.api.jsr283 interfaces will mirror
jcr-2.0.jar as much as possible, right?
