I think TeXmacs could be helpful in building a system for discussion
of scientific books.

To avoid copyright issues, only a small fraction of a book would be
made public, perhaps just the section headings and formulas. TeXmacs
could include a feature to do something like this automatically. The
output would preserve the same formatting/spacing/pagination etc. so
that page numbers match between both book versions.

People could then have discussions to try to better understand a book
that is made available in this way. The discussions could be done
using TeXmacs and linked to the relevant book sections/formulas. One
could even print out the discussion version of the book (which
includes the discussions) for study offline.
