You can use "soft" references, ie. string properties with node paths.
Your application will have to handle resolving those nodes manually
(no getNodes() available), but it has the big advantage that you can
move, export and import parts of your content without being blocked
because of temporarily unresolved references.

Don't expect that in the near future, because it depends on
Jackrabbit's internal storage architecture, which cannot be quickly
changed. Such an improvement is possible for a 3.0 release, which is
more than a year away. There were some ideas on the dev list about
that , if you are interested [1].
