Brief aside:

1. The first sentence of the wiki database article [1]:

A database is a structured collection of records or data that is
stored in a computer system.

2. The first sentence of http://couchdb.apache.org:

Apache CouchDB is a distributed, fault-tolerant and schema-free
document-oriented database accessible via a RESTful HTTP/JSON API.

3. The only time "document" occurs in the database article is:

See "Locking tables and databases" (section in some documentation /
explanation from IBM) for more detail.

That is all.
