I guess the "enhanced application interoperability" was targeted at the "new
nodetypes" only.

When I re-read my sentence now I realized that I probably should more specific
about mentioning the benefits of the new properties individually.

Shareable nodes are nodes that share the same properties and childnodes
and can appear in different locations of a single workspace tree.
I think it can be viewed like a less harmful & less complex re-introduction
of the hard-links that we had in the early days of JSR-170.

A very simple example would be that you can now file a document in various
folders in a (semi-)transparent way for the application and therefore
have an alternative way to model many-to-many relationships.
