Mikeal, please don't intentionally (or unintentionally) muddy the waters.

We all agree that our website could be clearer, and could present a
unified, more up-to-date vision for the project. Bringing this up and
presenting it as THE reason for confusion is unhelpful.

As I stated above:

Three (sic) things seem to be causing this confusion:

fairly clear the the MAIN source of confusion is NOT a lack of vision
within the CouchDB project, or at least, a communication of that vision
from our homepage.
