Well... because we're looking to do things with the documents (e.g., 
search, semantic operations on the metadata) that are better done in Couch.

Now if git provided a RESTful API, that would be a different matter.  
(As far as I can tell, the only source control system to do so is the 
WebDAV interface provided by Subversion).  Now if anyone has integrated 
a git backend, with a CouchDB front-end, pointers would be much appreciated!
