No my proposoal is adding this _user member to doc like _rev and _id,
so we can use it in validate_update functions, shows, changes filters
or anything where we can access to this property.

In case of a change filter we could restrict a feed to a user or if
the user is in group (would imply to pass the db security object to
the change filter, which we should do imo).
