While the technology is there (or will be), I worry if this is the
right solution for something else than soliciting comments on a
(fixed, non-editable) text.

I can all to easily imagine a situation where any documentation is
riddled with a plethora of notes, questions, answers, comments etc,
with nobody to clean up the mess every now and then.  For user-edited
documentation, a wiki seems a much better fit - where each author 
make some effort to leave pages as self-contained consistent

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
