If so, do you plan on connecting the DB directly to the open Internet, or use a middleware supplying a REST API for clients?

i would presume not. The USP of RethinkDB (at least from my very quick skim over the website :-) was the 'push' notification of updates to the clients - which would be lost if you used a 'traditional' REST API from the end-clients to a server.

Interesting. My take on that is that since it requires an open connection to the database in order for the notifications to happen, it's more like a pubsub sort of approach. Which is still a nice touch, but it seems like it requires either a direct connection to the db or a callback mechanism. And that is also from a very quick skim of that section of the docs.
