That preview at Max is not available, but InDesign already has strong collaboration built into it in 2 ways:

Share for Review (which has the writers using the web browser only)

and even better, if your writers have Acrobat:

The top secret is that only 3 commenting tools can auto-edit back into InDesign. You train your writers to use these 3 commenting tools primarily. And yes, any Acrobat including Reader.
