My view is that resolving should be done at read time.

The easiest way of doing this would be that if there are document conflicts,
*all* versions of the document are presented to the client when it asks for
a particular document.  At the moment you get just one version "at random",
unless you work quite hard to ask explicitly for all the versions.
