Question to David: Does Alfresco allow some kind of attached ("post-it"
like) comments for a document? And, simultaneously, displaying them on a
summary page (and grouping/sorting them arbitrarily, e.g. by document,
priority, creation date / due date, or by name of creator?).

It certainly does. There is a description attached to each document,
as well as other meta data. Comments can be attached to documents,
too. It is possible to develop special views that present documents
the way you mention (ordered by various criteria).

Moreover, it's worth remembering that Alfresco will display meta data
defined in the LibreOffice document. So much better use could be made
of that meta data. Plus, there's also the inline commenting that can
be placed in a document. There's also the possibility of generating
mail alerts each time a document is edited.

Nor should one forget each user's individual dashboard, which can show
activity, and updates on tasks and workflows. Although making full use
of some of these features implies clearly defining how you want to
