Quite possible. What you want there is operation transformation (OT) -
the same system google wave uses to do concurrent editing.

Its an active research area, though to my knowledge nobody has
implemented OT for geospacial data. (Though I haven't looked).

Should be very doable - couple months if you know what you're doing
and already had a map data editor.
