There is one issue with such approach: replications. You will not be
able to replicate documents which has different username in
audit_trail from those one who runs the replication. Or, to be more
detailed, you'll replicate fine all documents till the design document
which brings this validation function to your database and after that
you'll only able to store documents which matches replication's user.
