Could you describe what kinds of workarounds you've needed? Apart from
search the only workaround I believe is needed to emulate the SQL
model is:

    Value getValue(Node node, String name) throws ... {
        try {
            return node.getProperty(name).getValue();
        } catch (PathNotFoundException e) {
            return null;
