The following would be great:
- ability to add comments in specific sections of code or an HTML 
document.  For example, instead of saying "in the line 
Character.toChars(codePoint)" or "in the 3rd line of the second 
paragraph", it would be nice to just put a (virtual) sticky note in a 
particular line of code or a sentence in HTML.
- ability to track which comments have been addressed and which have not 
by the owner of the code/content
- ability to view HTML markup as well as formatted HTML page for content
- ability to re-publish reviews. Re-publishing reviews should preserve 
old comment history
- the commenting system would ideally be entirely web-based without the 
need to install additional client software
