I think for the _changes response, returning something in the 'doc' 
member is misleading as at the seq that the document was deleted, there 
was no document. The question "what happened to it?" is answered by the 
information already given in that row of the _changes response.

(this is all imho, of course, and I agree that old branches shouldn't 
include any changes we decide to make)
