I think it will be hard to define such.

Dumping CouchDB data as JSON looks intuitive and requires less
additional actions for import/export. Having couchdb-python approach
with multipart format provides lesser footprint, but requires a more
tricky processing (boundaries, headers). Both solutions may use
CouchDB API without any additional data conversion.  And both requires
a lot of disk space, much more than if you just copy database file or
make a replica of it, unless you xz-zip the output.
