Another reason replication is not quite a backup is that it does not
get _local docs, or the _security object. Also, in some situations (if
you have good storage capacity and bandwidth) you would want to back
up views too which is much easier from the OS layer, not the CouchDB
layer.

I wrote about this in a similar discussion here:
