"The write_once property is applied to a bucket type"... why only on bucket
Normally I use bucket types to use mutable data like Maps/Sets/Counters...
so I can update its contents (multiple writes) and when I have static data
I use a basic buckets:
It makes much more sense to me to have write_once capabilities in this kind
of bucket that not in a bucket type bucket. I can imagine the use of a
bucket type just for indexing data in Solr and not change it... but I think
simple buckets would benefit of this feature even more.

> Riak 2.1 is available ! Let’s start with the most fun part.
> ## New Feature
> Riak 2.1 introduces the concept of “write once” buckets, buckets whose
> entries are intended to be written exactly once, and never updated or
> over-written. The write_once property is applied to a bucket type and
> may only be set at bucket creation time. This allows Riak to avoid a
> "read before write" for write_once buckets only. More information, as
> always, is available in the docs 
> ## Other updates
> There are a number of GitHub Issues closed with the 2.1 release. Some
> noteworthy updates:
> * A nice solution for a corner case that could result in data loss 
> * A public API related to riak_core_ring_manager thanks to Darach Ennis!
> * A JSON writer for a number of riak_admin commands - see commit for
> details 
> * Updates to Yokozuna (Riak’s Solr integration) that include
> additional metrics thanks to Jon Anderson! 
> Be sure to see the full Release Notes here  and the Product Advisories
> ## Upgrading
> Be sure to review documentation  before an upgrade. It’s worth
> noting that all nodes in a cluster must be at 2.1 before you set the
> write_once property on a bucket.
> It’s worth noting that there is a known issue with Yokozuna that
> causes entry loss on AAE activity . Please keep this in mind before
> ## Feedback please
> Do you have a use case where write_once could be helpful? Please reply
> to me directly! I would love to learn about your environment and be
> able to share more details with you.
