My guess is that it comes down to flexibility. It's sort of the same  
argument that structure prohibits flexibility. Reference integrity is  
not very often needed, and causes much more headaches down the road.  
Imagine if you couldn't remove an article you created simply because  
some other article someone else created is linked to it.

Maybe you can store the actual UUID in a string instead of using a  
reference? It would be similar to a reference, as it uses the UUID  
internally, just that reference integrity is not maintained if the  
document the UUID belong to is deleted.
