As I understand, you plan to have a single document, which would probably end up 
being unwieldy: why not to break it up into constituent sub-documents (nodes and 
edges) ?

However, I have some experience in storing graphs in CouchDB as a collections of 
nodes and edges documents (with Views to query them), but it ended up not a pretty 
sight: have you already looked into a proper graph database (like Neo4J) as 
persistence mechanism ?

You may also be interested in RDF data stores (OpenRDF ?).
