CouchDB filtering is currently a yes/no operation per doc. So you
would want to have related docs to the tag that hold the 'stat of the
value'. Filter the parent tag doc, and let the 'stat of the value'
docs go back to the public db.

Yes, there will be a limit on how many for concurrent dbs per OS. It
is really high anyway. Someone else will have to give real life
numbers on this. But if you hit the wall, just add more servers. They
are cheap as chips :) The couch replication model is nice because it
is flexible with how you might grow.
