I was having a hard time getting Internet Explorer 8 ( IE8) working with Socket.IO's "htmlfile" transport (or any other transport for that matter). I was getting weird permissions issues. I finally fixed the problem by adding a DTD to the top of my HTML file, "<!doctype html>". I was just being lazy not having a DTD, but I was really surprised when that fixed my problem. Of course, I'm still having a hard time getting IE7, IE6, and Opera working …
…you would want to use. A clear disadvantage of JSON is that it lacks validation (think DTD), and of course comments — ha, ha!
Why, oh why?
So along with "Why?", we should consider the following:

Is CouchDB (really) the better fit for my application?
What is my #1 problem in MySQL, and how does CouchDB solve it?
And if we are still convinced to migrate all of our data, we'll need to decide on an access wrapper.
It's all HTTP, right? …
