I think it depends entirely on your data and how complex the view functions are.

The thing to remember is that when CouchDB needs to update a view, it updates _every_ view
in that design document. If you have some views that are only queried rarely, or have especially
slow map/reduce functions, it can help to put them in their own design documents.
