JCR & Alfresco, monolingual by design?

I plan to store content plus metadata in an Alfresco installation, but need to access it using the JCR interface. Is there any way I can benefit from Alfresco's MLText property type? ATM, it is only presented to the JCR interface as a single STRING property.

As far as I can see, JSR-170 was intentionally designed without explicit support for multilingual strings, but I don't know if there is a canonical way of working around this. The second most intuitive solution I can think of is adding (automatically generated) aspects for each localization, which is somewhat more complex.

Thanks in advance for all kinds of advice,
