Some of it is possible. Note that comms is just one way - one command control
station to many trains or accessories. Limited feedback is possible.

Multiple trains on a track - Definitely yes. This is what it's all about.
Collision detection - How? Do you mean packet collision which is just a comms
 thing or the type resulting in assorted bits of metal and plastic?
Trains talking to trains. Trains talking to signals. Signals talking to
trains. Signals talking to signals. Trains switching points. Signals
switching points. - Nope. This is one of my biggest gripes with DCC. Limited
 talkback capability.

Power down features. ... :-) Huh?
