Hey Suraj,

These questions usually answer themselves when you put some key pieces
of info together"

1. replication is asynchronous and may take place over days, weeks or longer.

2. the "time" at which a change arrives at another instance may not
represent the time it arrived at the first instance.

3. you can put any info you like into a document, and use a validation
function to enforce it.

If that's not enough, please add some more info on your use case.
