I'd second that.

How about creating a page template that has a section for each of these

Potential alternate terminology: "Motivation".

Even that might be a not-so-good idea. The comments page often contains 
a wealth of valuable tips and alternate approaches that the original 
author didn't think about. Splitting it off into a separate page 
increases the probability that visitors will overlook it - it's just 
that additional click away.
Scrolling down is so much easier (and you can easier refer back to the 
actual recipe).
