Quick summary from that call:

- We need some way of backwards compatibility re. sessions as discussed 
in OAK-803. Otherwise client code could break in very subtle ways 
creating a support legacy.

- Pushing the refresh logic down to Root and related is not a good 
option since we want to keep oak-core strictly MVCC by keeping the 
backwards compatibility tweaks in oak-jcr.

- Pulling the refresh logic up into a separate JCR wrapper would factor 
the solution into a separate component. But it would introduce extra 
complexity, a lot of new classes and duplicate much of the logic we have 
in the current XyzDelegate classes.

- Introducing Delegate implementations for the problematic entities 
(i.e. UserManger) was deemed the solution to go for now. The other 
suspects that came up in a quick usage search are: PrincipalManager, 
VersionManager, ACManager, PermissionProvider, ObservationManager,  and 

I'll start looking into implementing those extra Delegate classes on an 
as need basis.
