I was going to pass that in the first time the debate raged but decided it
was best for me to stay the hell out (I have no need for JSON-update). But
as far as guidance for an RFC goes, it could be a great start. While xquery
is a ugly beast, the xquery-update facility is fairly elegant.

The problem is it requires something like xpath to work, and while json-path
exists, evaluation is not pure json and requires a javascript interpreter,
which breaks with couch's design philosophy.

A collection in xquery terms is really nothing more than a tag with a few
supporting APIs. What does it gives you that you can't get right out of the
box with couch?
