[Bill Davis] "While the other A's are trying to essentially find places in the traditional "sit down and edit" suite based collaborative model, Apple appears to be pushing rather handily into the "It's happening NOW - lets' get it live to market" space.

Not to say X can't play just as well in the sit and edit realm, but there's a lot more to "collaborative workflows" than just the hollywood movie style gig. "

I would tend to agree with this. Having worked in Avid collaborative systems as well as other non-Avid approaches to shared storage, I can certainly attest to the fact that there are lots of ways to skin the cat. Any and all success that FCP 1-7 had in shared environments will attest to that. Most collaboration is really just "start in one place" and "pick it up later in another". It's much less about several editors banging away at the same sequence at the same time.

FCP X is still a bit rough around the edges when it comes to collaboration, but it's not far off, especially with the shift to libraries. I can easily see sharing projects (without media) via iCloud, just like a Pages document.
