Span is a mounting problem. We may not want to have any anonymous

The fundamental question is where to store the comment content. Silva
news articles are stored as xml and versioned, so it wouldn't make
sense to add the comments to the xml. For instance that would change
the last modified date of the article. Often news articles are
adjusted after publication, because someone finds a typo. Or as a
result of a comment! :-)
Some sort of 'attached' object would be needed that contains all the
comment content and comment management functionality. This could be
attached to news articles or Silva documents or any metatype.

Roman, is it applicable or extractable?
