I think there could still be replication conflicts with an update
approach.  For instance, if the original document has

    "pizza" : "cheese"

and in one database I change it to

    "pizza" : "pepperoni"

and in another I change it to

    "pizza" : "anchovies"

one still encounters a conflict.  Those two changes can't both succeed.
Perhaps I've overlooked some way to work around this.
