Until now, that is! Check out this press release for details on the global launch. Quote:
Released and available in North America only since December 7, 2014, Collaboration for Revit will be available for commercial global use as of January 7, 2016.

I, for one, am very excited about this. I have been involved in at least one geographically distributed vanilla Revit Server setup, and I think that the necessity to have 'my IT people talk to your IT people to set up a DMZ between our VPNs' is a bit counter-productive. In these situations, the global availability of C4R will really shine. Now, firms will be able to spin up a C4R instance very quickly and get working together, on real projects and in real-time.

Between this global launch of Collaboration for Revit, and the improvements in the Glue - Navisworks connection in 2016 products, my Federated Model Streamer concept is one step closer to reality :)
