In it's simplest form, consider a large community of members or peers,
in which each member subscribes to one or more of a dozen CouchDB
databases.

Within each database, community members could post documents, comment
and/or take other actions on any one doc.  However, each of these
actions would not be an update to the original docs but would rather
be creations of new docs.

The end result should be a situation in which each subscriber
eventually ends up with all of the documents in their corresponding
local CouchDB copy.

For simplicity, lets take this part out of the discussion by assuming
that any one document would be modifiable and/or deletable only by its
original author/poster.
