And which one do we put on the file system? Its not possible to know
which url a client will need to access, only the client will be aware
of the network configuration at their specific site. Since CouchDB
can't decide, it needs to provide clients with the information
necessary for making the decision.

Also, in real life, I doubt most people will ever have more than two
entries in this file. Right now, its not even possible to have more
than two.
