I guess this is an example where a direct discussion would be more
efficient than an email... I don't want to split a hair, but "to a lesser
degree complex" doesn't sound like "basically is" :-)

I see all layers need a way to represent uncommitted changes, even oak-mk
need keep things uncommitted for the duration of the commit method, but
ideally such a mechanism should be internal to each layer, so that method
calls that cross the layer boundaries are minimized.

Looking at method call traces I see now that in fact a JCR "Node.addNode"
call doesn't always result in a corresponding call in the MicroKernel, so
I guess my concern about the transient space might not be justified when
it comes to calls to the MicroKernel (even thought there are still quite a
lot of MicroKernel calls, and quite unexpected calls, for relatively
simple JCR operations).

As for calls between Oak JCR and Oak Core I can't comment.
