This idea has its upsides, but I'm wary of breaking
backwards-compatibility with _bulk_docs.

However, I don't see anything wrong with the way _bulk_docs currently
handles create/update/delete (even if it isn't RESTful).

On IRC there have been some good arguments in favor of an include_docs
option for view, which could be used with _all_docs and multi-key view
requests to yield the _load_docs (fetch docs in bulk) feature.

Also with that design Tom's original question on this thread would be
a simple case.
