It seems that _id is not given a unique index by default (only a default index).. Automattic/mongoose#2195 I'm quite surprised that this was not further discussed/mentioned. May be because "unique" does not provide much (or any?) performance advantage ?

? The _id index is always inherently unique.
Mongo would be, well, very broken if that were not true.
