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.
I should point out that the adjective "civilized" was used by Obi-Wan in ANH to describe the era of the lightsaber.

And also that, historically speaking, "civilized knights" tended to do a lot of fighting with swords.
Whatever happens on earth, that up there, that's the endgame.
