Comment is not the same as editing, even in a restrict form. Comment is 
more in the line of an attribute. It's something that is added to a page 
but without changing the page text contents. When editing a page I 
expect to edit it's text without the comments. A comment could be added 
or deleted but not modified.

The blocking mechanisms should be available for commenting but 
commenting should not be related to editing. There should be the 
possibility to receive a notice when a page is edited (text contents 
modified) and not when a new comment is added (text contents remains the 
same) and vice-versa, receiving a notice just when a page has a new comment.

If the text md5 is implemented I expect it's value be related to the 
page text contents and not to the page comments
