      There are many systems that contain highly structured data (in my case loan data) containing historic data such as prices or versions. Being forced to split these into separate top-level documents because of the document size limitation in some ways makes the database no more useful than an RDBMS and defeats the purpose of using a document-oriented database.

      At the very least the document size should be increased from 16mb to a more realistic 64mb. In my systems, for example, a loan's data (with historic price information) is at around 30mb per loan, and could double.
