For backward compatibility: even modern query server still able to
serve for 0.8+ CouchDB there was only map/reduce functions. Other
design functions was introduced only in 0.9 release with stand alone
commands and at 0.11 they was refactored to be as subcommand for
"ddoc". However, that's my own opinion why so - probably actual
developers are able to give you more correct answer.

To track all query server history, you may take a look at Python
one[1] - there was implemented support for all CouchDB versions within
single server and all their differences are well described.
