What's your objection to drafting in Confluence? When your docs are in
a wiki, supporting multiple reviewers is pretty painless. I generate
PDF and web help directly from Confluence.

My workflow is very simple:

1. draft and revise topics in Confluence to reflect changes in the release
2. create JIRA issues for reviewers
3. revise per their comments and clean up any edits they made
4. go back and forth as necessary, tracking with JIRA
5. when all JIRA issues for the release are closed, generate final doc
for release

I hope I never have to go back to using an offline, non-collaborative
authoring tool.
