Google docs for students

Save google's business by giving universities what they need
  [vote for,

Then again it may cause Microsoft to fall, and we're back at square one from 2001.

As a student (yeah I know, I'm a little bit too old for this, but that's life. I decided to change course from IT, DSP and Cognition, and move on to linguistics and ancient writing) we have to read and write our assignments with MS-Word.

Since I fell in love with Google Docs long ago, I would propose a business model with a paid program to be offered by them to the universities which would include:

- Authenticated and timestamped locking of file - for submission.
- IPA and other symbol shortcuts.
- Group working with an admin of the doc (can lock out and override)
- Better version control and show diff.
- Better multi language control and defaults
. - Better tool for footnotes and bibliography, as well as table of contents.
- Folder management for learning groups. - On site backup, although content location is in cloud.

Anything else missing?

       Or just get Google Wave back?

       Could we retitle this idea “Give Google Docs feature parity with a competitor’s product” ?
