There's something interesting to be found on CPAN. Although it doesn't address the use case you're requesting directly, think of it as a technology demo.

http://search.cpan.org/~jesse/RT-TicketWhiteboard-1.7/

The TicketWhiteboard extension provides a wiki-style text area which you can edit in place, using AJAX (or something). Check it out, if you can, and tell us if that kind of functionality, adapted to your scenario (per-ticket, per-user and perhaps optionally replacing textarea on the correspond page Ticket/Update.html), could address your problem.

Jesse, TicketWhiteboard is a brilliant idea, however the current implementation is a bit rough. This extension is quite definately something I'm going to have a serious look at once more pressing issues (unrelated to RT) are tackled.
