Nodes in Jackrabbit do not have hierarchical information like its path,
but only its parent and its children. Storing path information like you
suggest might be handy in some parts, though at the same time makes
moving large subtrees almost impossible (at least very cpu and time
consuming): currently, moving a subtree of nodes is a very small
operation in jackrabbit. If you would store all hierarchical data the
way you suggest, you cannot easily move nodes anymore.
