Any IMAP server MUST provide this as part of the specification.

Yes.  It provides this with any folder, provided that the ACL is set

Well, seen state is per user, so you won't know if someone else read the 
message.  If you allow all of these users to store message flags ('w' 
right), then you will know when someone else replied via the \Answered 
flag.  Similarly, allowing the 'd' right will allow the messages to be 
marked as \Deleted.
