I think the original idea was more like variant 2. See whiteboard 
snapshot at the bottom of 
http://wiki.apache.org/jackrabbit/OakComponentStructure. However name 
space mapping and most of node type stuff was though to go into oak-jcr.

AFAIR we didn't discuss workspaces then but from that picture it seems 
logical to me that workspace management should also go into oak-core.
