SharePoint allows checking out files so no one else is allowed to edit it at the same time:
MS Office supports this function inside the applications:
It would be nice to add this set of functionalities to LibreOffice.
I'm not sure what all the related functions and respective UI parts would be, this requires further evaluation.
Mike, i know you love SharePoint ;-) Can you confirm this enh?

Checking out a file already open in Word
When checking out a file on the web UI that is already open in Word, I get a message: "The file (...) is locked by (me) for shared use"

Checking out a file already open in Writer
On the other hand, current-ish LO master does not lock the file like Word: I can check it out without an error message.
Opening the file happened via a WebDAV-attched share.

A file checked out from Word
As per the description in the original comment, it is possible to check out files via the Information -> Manage Versions button in Word and the SP web UI reflects this state too.
Let me put this to NEW. We don't exactly have the same features unless the SP share is attached via the CMIS dialog.
