If people were to respect each other, they would add different point of
view, within the current page (i.e not delete what other wrote because
they disagree).

If I follow what you mean, it also implies that your users will need to

The only circumstance where you might need to present different version
of a page, it's when a given version was "approved".

Peacefully implies accepting different point of view (contribute on the
same page). If two contributors needs to have different pages to avoid
edit wars, well, they aren't peaceful !
