:If Wiki allowed for password protection would it fit your requirements?
Not really. A Wiki works on the model that everyone is the editor; the
model that I need to operate on is a single editor, many reviewers.

My understanding of Zope is limited, but it might provide the
facilities needed, yes.
Here's an implementation that's "almost there":
The thing I want (that I've seen in private in-house implementations)
is a view that shows the original document and the comment in a single
view, here you have to click to get the comments.
I can envision a scheme where a document is broken into objects that
can be commented on, and on presentation a document object can be
displayed togther with its' associated comment objects. Sound like
something Zope could facilitate?
