That is correct.

After a night's sleep, I better appreciate the argument against my
response in JIRA.

Does CouchDB store my **JSON** (and mutate it minimally, for _rev)?

Or does CouchDB store my **data**, where JSON is simply how we express
the underlying "stuff" to be stored?

IMO it's the second; but for this discussion (whether it should be a
blocker), it seems at worst a breaking change, not a blocker.
