I'm not sure about common "properties", but I think conceptually collaboration should focus on the two parts of its stem - the "co" or together and the "labore" or work. What you were terming as "context", I would think of as access and presence (can I get to it, does it know I am there) which certainly help with the "co" part of things, particularly if it is also "relational" in all senses of the word. On the labore side, I would expect it to be adaptable, assistive and work-enabling. Role, process, metadata et al can all fit into this sort of conceptual framework which you could use as a kind of benchmark for any tool to evaluate its collaborative quality...
