I guess the hard part of this is that nextcloud and others don't
actually have access to the document, just tiles of it, i.e. bitmaps.
This architecture has benefits like "your documents never leave the
server" and also that there are ~no edit conflicts, but has costs like
very hard integration with an existing running server.
