It makes sense to store all documents used by an application in the same database. That way
your data can be easily replicated along with your design documents. Only start separating
data into different databases when there is a real need. If you can't explain why you need
multiple databases, just start with a single one. Relax, you can always split out later.

No. (But maybe somebody else's are?)

I have no idea.
