This https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-2003 is a pretty complete

Not sure what exactly you mean. For saving stuff, yes, the transient
space is on the client side and we batch them on save. But we still need
somehow a way to map all JCR methods to PHPCR (the JCR for PHP). How
that's done on the HTTP level doesn't really matter, as long as it's
somehow possible.

Currently it seems that the HTTP "API" is just an afterthought and
therefore sometimes neglected. It would be great if that would be
different in JR3. Like in other newer approaches lately, eg. in couchdb
(that's just the example which popped up in my mind, I'm not saying,
that's a perfect example :))

I don't see this going into JSR-333 either.
