hrrrm - technically i suppose that is true but, currently, conflicts  
are impossible to detect: if you did an update of 1000 docs and one  
collided you'd have no way (programatically) to take corrective action  
since the cause of the conflict is not reported - if it were, then  
this would seem like a viable option - i know we talked about that  
before though and that it's on the radar - but just thought i'd  
through that out there: denormalizing the phone numbers does set one  
up for a bulk update scenario - moving the phone numbers into another  
doc might help this...

we can deny everything, except that we have the possibility of being  
better. simply reflect on that.
