Its not a matter of fairness. A test load that CouchDB is good at
might not be good for a different database. There have been a couple
pushes to have a set of benchmarks that could be run to get an overall
feel for a given database but there's a lot of other hidden aspects.
As Chris points out a fairly specific one is disaster recovery.
