We use PI's as well, as Tom said there are many benefits. However we only
use the PI's to markup the regions and assign a small amount of metadata
(username, unique id etc), any comments or other information associated
with the change are stored outside the document in a database. This way, if
the change get's removed, accepted, or rejected, the information
surrounding it lives on in an audit record. This has been very important
for our customers.
