How to share RE's
 
You could just self-contain it, and lock all of the patch settings for everyone but owners of the RE. You could still edit the channel in the mixer and the sequencer, but not the rack. This way you could collaborate without being able to save say, 10 Antidotes into a file and sending it to someone who doesn't own it.

If all patch settings are locked why not just bounce channel to audio?

So that the collaborator who owns the RE can still make edits. Both would still be able to make changes to the midi in the sequencer as well.

I really don't understand how this would be logical. You can get the RE, free for 30 days. If you want it, you buy it.

Just for the sake of collaboration. For the same reason they let you self contain refill patches.

if the person you're collaborating with doesn't want it, that doesn't work.

I think this request is very valid. Before RE all Reason users had the same set of tools and therefore collaboration was easy. Now some users have some (sometimes quite expensive) REs at their disposal, while other users don't have and only get those cardboard boxes without functionality when opening a file from a collaborator. Having a locked but functional version of the RE (maybe hidden behind the cardboard) would really help with people collaborating.

In practice one person could for example focus on the arrangement, while the other person would focus on mixing and mastering the track. It's quite obvious that both of those would employ different sets of REs for their task while not being interested in buying all of those.

The RE could be greyed out, so you can see what it is doing, but not be able to access it. It would be good advertising for it too. The cabling on the back would have to be locked/greyed also.

I agree that Reason took a strange step from Reason 5 that introduced self-contain for 3rd party refills to facilitate collaboration and then broke it with the introduction of Rack Extensions. A smooth solution would be if the RE was locked in folded mode and most of the automation locked/greyed out with only note editing and control for modwheel, pitchbend, and aftertouch.

Well, if he doesn't want it, why would he use it in the first place?
