I imagine this could be useful to some. But frankly, I'd unlikely to
use this feature myself.

There's been a discussion about comments, but unfortunately I can't
find a link now. AFAIR, the main concerns were dealing with spam,
usefulness of the comments and terms of the service that provides the
support for comments (license, traffic injection, etc.)

IMO, comments and let alone chats are inappropriate for documentation,
detrimental even. I wouldn't want these to be enabled for my docs.
