Chris: thanks for the fast reply and thanks for the incredible amount of
work you are doing towards development of couchdb

to further clarify...

Referential integrity falls to the method/function/processes of an
application that is using the data stored in a couchdb db file rather than
any inbuilt couchdb method/function/process.

Normal/denormal is relevant to the structure of rdbms where sql would
typically be used to query the data. Essentially how 'self contained' a
document may be in couchdb is relative to specific use cases of
application/s that access the db file.

...normal/denormal has little if any actual relevance to document structures
or patterns of document management used within couchdb?

CouchApp is an abbreviated way of saying 'couchdb standalone application'.

Any 'couchdb standalone application' is a CouchApp.

My two cents says the core documentation for _ids and _revs is strong but
thanks for reiterating anyways...
