Sure, so we can create a DDL or what have you, but unless I'm missing
something, I don't see a way to make a view that filters on doc.type or
some other field, and then emits a simple set of values, which I think is
required for a minimal view implementation. The idea of JSON pointers where
we can just let users define path strings for the key and value is really
intriguing, but missing functionality.
