What I was trying to communicate is that the existing replication API
*is* the document API restricted to POST. Add GET and some validations
that don't let you change fields that would alter the replication ID
and BOOM!

Then, detach the replication supervisor and gen_servers from the httpd
api and have them hook straight into changes internally.

Do I make any sense?
