Linking word/Powerpoint/Excel etc. to Onenote to be able to edit live with shared notebook members

It is so annoying to have to download a copy of word/excel/powerpoint documents when links are featured within Onenote, when shared notebook members are working on the same documents collaboratively. Even if you save those documents within Onedrive and share them, the links to the documents have to be opened as read-only and 'saved-as' every time. I am aware that documents can be worked on collaboratively if saved within Onedrive, but it seems such a shame that this working collaboratively feature isn't present within Onenote.

    This is huge! I would love to be able to be able to insert a Word Doc as a "page" or "subpage" in OneNote and have it be live editable (for those with permissions) as I can in Teams. I would also like the Teams metaconversation functionality in OneNote so that collaborators could discuss the document they were live-editing while in OneNote. This would not only help with student collaboration, but also with grading a paper formatted properly in Word by using Word's Insert->Comment feature all while staying in OneNote.
