I did some more tests:
1) when using a defined name with the defined type -> the correct
nodetype is used
2) when using a residual name -> nt:unstructured is taken as declaring nodetype
3) when using a defined name but a type that is incompatible with the
defintion -> nt:unstructured is used as declaring nodetype

Is 3) really a valid behaviour? I would expect this to fail.
That's not only for weakreferences but for all types I tested. It is
especially easy to notice with weakreferences as
I can only pass a node to the setProperty method and must rely on
jackrabbit to set the correct type.
