Greg don't assume you need to move the model over the internet.  These solutions do not move the data the way you would think.  The amount of data that is transferred is very small, requiring only a 1Mbit connection speed.

Large Assemblies, Complex Surfaces and Real Time Computing

In theory this sounds good.  However, until the bandwidth of internet connection dramatically improves, I don't see how we can collaboratively achieve 'real-time' computing solutions on CAD files with very large assemblies and/or highly complex surfaces.  My dedicated, high-powered workstation is already too slow for these types of files, so even a 'high-speed' internet connection using today's technology would be even slower.

Perhaps down the road, internet speeds will be fast enough for this to be reasonably effective...

I'm strugling to see how this is different from some of the Building Information Modeling tools that have been around for over 10 years. I realize that they are not all SAAS but they do sometimes, but not always, work off a  common model in the "cloud".
