My experience with DCE/DFS for some years has been that it's
locking/distributed-sync capabilities are at least as good as AFS. I
say that with the caveat that I haven't stressed anything except
conservative use of lock files. If Greg says that AFS will work, then
I'd believe that DCE/DFS would too.

Now, it's fine-grained Unix+ACL permission system is far too
complicated for most mortal users, but that's an entirely different
story (AFS strikes a much better balance IMO).
