Subject Deleting a document that has been 'copied'.
Date Thu, 15 May 2014 20:15:48 GMT
When using my application user which has 'member' permissions in my database, and an entry
in the validate_doc_update design document to permit newDoc._deleted:

When I create a document (using POST - document contains inline attachment stubs), I am able
to delete that created document without any problems.

If I 'copy' that created document (using
to a new document within the same database, I am not able to delete the copied document. 
When I attempt to delete the copied document I get response:
{"error":"forbidden","reason":"Only admins may delete documents"}

This 'throw' does not exist anywhere in my validate_doc_update.  Nor can I find it in google
(numerous 'Only admins may' matches, but none with that exact phrase).

I'm using Couch 1.3.1.  Have I stumbled on a bug, or is this expected behaviour for copied
