I definitely agree! Have you ever played Socratic Smackdown http://www.instituteofplay.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/IOP_PrintPlay_SocraticSmackdown_v1.pdf ? It's a great way of gamifying discussion techniques that I've been using a lot in my class this year, this reminds me a bit of that.

I think this would maybe be less challenging for some people and also emphasises the mutual exchange of ideas, of which disruption can take place within?

I really like this idea! Useful feedback is something that you have to explicitly each both in terms of being able to give it and receive/use it, I think. We use a method of peer assessment/feedback called Rosebud Feedback https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/13uCydCNEPsY-YiuDTj6FH0f3Shbqh4kZvhB8vIOFBfU/edit?usp=sharing that I started with the kids at the start of the year to encourage them to give feedback that was really purposeful rather than just "I love how you've finished your story!". Like in your model, this gives students a reason for giving feedback as formative assessment so then they're able to see why it needs to be given in such a specific way to work.
