i don't think that this would work without a major redesign of jackrabbit's
core architecture.

SharedISM caches ItemState instances read from the PM. this
memory-sensitive cache, apart from helping to reduce PM calls,
guarantees that there's only *one* ItemState instance for any given id
on this layer. similarly, 'caches' in SessionISM and LocalISM are
crucial for jackrabbit's support of isolation levels. changing the
semantics/behavior of those 'caches' would easily lead to data
corruption/lost updates etc.
