Collaborative editing is not something you can just bolt on after the fact if you want it to actually work well. Things like building a robust server that can be exposed to the internet can certainly wait, but how you are you supposed to develop a plugin ecosystem when you haven't even settled on a conceptual model for how to store and manipulate text yet?

Yes, but my comment also alludes to the opinion that "well working collaborative editing" is not a real problem people have, and a much easier (and easier to bolt on) use case, of consecutive (serialized with "locks") collaborative editing should cover most people's needs...
