It would be a great feature with collaborative playlists if you could share editing access to the playlist by account, and not a link. By doing this, you could also make the playlist only visable if you are signed in on an account that the playlist creator gave editing abilities to, which would probably make people a lot more comfortable when using collaborative playlists. You could then also edit permissions per account, which would be very helpful; you could promote some people to editors, and allow certain people to only view/listen to the playlist.
I think if these changes were made, collaborative playlists would probably become a lot more popular, because at the moment all it takes is one person to send out a link, and many people could gain access to the playlist without the owner knowing.
