Not really. The reference I usually use is this one in the wiki[1], but it’s incomplete;
I’ve added details as I discover them, but I’m sure there are other things missing.

Your approach of whitelisting might be the best way to do it, especially since the db on the
server will only be accessed by the TouchDB replicator, which is fairly predictable in the
subset of API calls that it makes.

I’m interested to see whether this works for you, because this would be useful to other
people too. The Syncpoint database-per-user approach is IMHO cleaner and more flexible, but
will take a fair bit of doing to implement properly, and JChris hasn’t had time to devote
to it lately.
