Jan Lehnardt commented on COUCHDB-1952:

We should still clarify this in the new docs.

> The wiki stated "Note that any top-level fields within a JSON document containing a name
that starts with a _ prefix are reserved for use by CouchDB itself."
> In the new documentation the closest equivalent I can find is the hand-wavy "As a general
rule, URL components and JSON fields starting with the _ (underscore) character represent
a special component or entity within the server or returned object."
> I'd like to see the official documentation clarified:
> - are underscore fields still reserved? (I'm assuming so.)
> - are they reserved only at the top level? (I'm hoping so.)
