there is no reason to not keep the simplicity while the couchapps
feature grow. And I personnaly hope that CouchDB will help to remove
the need of a centralized hosting and just use these services as a
facility to put online for a time our data.

But that's just the way I see it. Today it's already possible to had
an hostname to any couchapp and write an handler listening on each dbs
to get updates in ddocs and then set hostname.

What could be interresting is y to ease management of  modules in
couch so you can add your mod_vhost like you can do on apache.
