Probably the MBean would be the way to go if you want to go through the chain.
On the p2 side - currently standard p2 provisioning is only available for the kernel region, which is p2 managed i.e. has a p2 profile, etc.
The user region is brought in as a resource during installation, so p2 has no knowledge what is in there. In principle you can replace the user region content the same way it was created, by advicing p2 to remove the old content and copy the new one. But you have to code that on your own in a p2.inf placed in the resource bundle that will contain the new content.
At the moment we don't provide a convenient mechanism for this. The standard way of extending the user region so far is through the deployment chain and the Virgo repositories.
As for p2 repo support in the repo chain, we don't have immediate plans for it - won't happen in 3.5, but it is surely in the pipeline so it will probably happen sometime post 3.5.
Here's the bug for it: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=309778
