Since functionally the CMIS specification is a subset of the

Yes, the more challenging part is the mapping *from* a JCR repository
(how to deal with the information loss).
Defining a mapping will be useful, because it could be re-used to define
the relation of CMIS and WebDAV. I think the technically most
interesting approach would be to enhance WebDAV to carry the information
it currently doesn't have (such as node type information), and then to
build CMIS as an extension *into* the Jackrabbit WebDAV layer.
Another thing the CMIS TC should look into are the various proposals for
including support for hierarchies into AtomPub (see, for example,
It seems to me that this problem is generic enough, and the solution
should not be specific to CMIS.
