What happens if Bob does not accept to open it immediately? Will the
document still be available for him to join the collaboration at a
later point in time?

So the token to edit a document is not persistent over collaboration
sessions? Bob has to request again, although he's already been
invited/authenticated before? I'd rather support use case 3. Alice
should be able to revoke Bob's credentials anyways, right?
FWIW, I'm just a normal abiword developer, not involved with collab.
