I am not sure that this is cause of concern for this particular
release. We only use those dependencies at compile-time so that bnd can
calculate the proper import ranges.

If someone wants to use the content loader bundle in an environment
with a deprecated/out-of-support Jackrabbit version, that's their

It's the other way around actually :-) - we should declare dependencies
as loosely as possible so that we don't constrain consumers to specific
Jackrabbit/Oak versions.

So IMO the versions are fine just the way they are.
