How couch encodes that as a file name in an OS would be internal to
couch, so if couch is using query string encoding for the file name, that
may be a good choice for OS portability. However, my understanding is
that '+' representing a space in a URL is only valid for the *query* part
of a URL.

Agreed — it should not be necessary to URL-encode “+” signs in the path portion of a
URL. Your URL refers to the database named “aaa+bbb”, not “aaa bbb”, so the request
should have succeeded. This sounds like a bug in CouchDB.
