Merely amping up the Obi-Wan vs. Vader fight to the point of two jumping beans bouncing off the walls is the sort of thing JJ probably would do if he had the chance to meddle, and it would be a perversion of the redeeming value of the OT, but that's how a lot of the audience perceive Star Wars these days, as nothing but thrill and no substance.
Actually being the old-school SW fan that he is, I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to dial back the lightsaber battles a bit for his movies, and return the Jedi to being more of the magical and civilized knights of the OT.

The prequel battles might have been kinetic and exciting to watch, but there wasn't anything terribly magical about them anymore, and I suspect he'd want to get back to that.
