I think the choice to manage "comment" as a subclass of creativework is both logical, simple and powerful 
It would also enable to have comments on comments which is useful.

Btw this afternoon I tried to find a way to link articles to an article as "relatedarticle" or "relatedcreativework" and I did not find any way to do so. Is there a way to do it?
