And while we are speaking, on emacs-devel mailing list we found
Qiantan Hong, who made Emacs Lisp to make real time simultaneous
editing, and we are testing it now.

But I still cannot find good reason to make it "simultaneous"
editing. Maybe for correcting students or correcting language,
interpunction, inspection, really hard to think. It is not logical and
not practical to have two separate minds far apart from each other
working on the text in same time. I wish to find more practical use cases.
