Michael Dürig commented on OAK-2498:

Patch LGTM AFAICS. I didn't follow through all the details on how those types 
are passed along though. 

As you suggest, let's start with the part of the patch that unblocks us on 
OAK-4740. For the other types I think any implementation should come along with 
a POC of the tooling that would profit from them.

> According to the [documentation | 
> http://jackrabbit.apache.org/oak/docs/nodestore/segmentmk.html] the root 
> record references in a segment header provide enough context for parsing all 
> records within this segment without any external information. 
> Turns out this is not true: if a root record reference turns e.g. to a list 
> record. The items in that list are record ids of unknown type. So even though 
> those records might live in the same segment, we can't parse them as we don't 
> know their type.
