Well, changes feed emits only one event per changed document.  In case
of continuous feeds, it also follows the upcoming updates as well.
These events are ordered by the way they'd happened in database
(thanks to update_seq). This behaviour also known as eventual
consistency, when event B cannot happen after A if IRL it actually
happened before A. So does the changes feed.

For CouchDB 2.0 you shouldn't relay on such order even more.

What you really need, imho, is model migration or well handled it
upgrade by the fact of receiving outdated one.
