the joomla! approuche is a smart one. when someone start editing an article the core block it and its keep blocked until the current editor save it, if the editor get disconected the article remains blocked until the editor reconect and save it or and admin unblock it. it use ajax to automatic save the article from time to time. maybe you can use something like that but you give every one the avility to unblock a register. cheers
