I could limit it to 1kb perhaps - at this point it doesn't matter too much.
I imagine it would still maim, if not kill, performance. Correct?

Any way to break it up and maybe use the reduce to know which document to

I could certainly do that. Indeed my original plan, before discovering the
magic of 'group=true', was to fetch each piece of entity-data separately.
