jcr 2.0 will most probably cover node type management. jcr 2.0 is currently
in the works, for more details please see http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=283.

however, the final release is planned for may 2007, and this schedule is
subject to change...

another word of caution: don't expect too much wrt node type interoperability
amongst different vendors. just like every database vendor has his 'own' brew
of ddl syntax, most repository vendors will have specific restrictions
and features.

for example, currently none of the jcr implementations i know of support
nt:unstructured (except jackrabbit of course ;-).
