Node-RED and Cloudant instances

Every time you create a new Node-RED application, Bluemix creates a new instance of Cloudant to store Node-RED flows.
As services are a 'restricted resource' wouldn't it be better if one could choose if he wants to bind an existing instance? Node-RED should be updated so that each Node-RED projects stores its flows in a different Cloudant table.

    With the boilerplate mechanism, this level of user-choice simply isn't possible.

    I'm working on a repository with a 'Deploy to Bluemix' button - it appears this mechanism works differently to boilerplates and will create a single cloudant instance per space and reuse it for each instance deployed with the button. That should address your requirements.
