Thanks Daniel for raising this, and Stéphane for digging out the
previous discussion.

Let's get this fixed. I've raised an issue to track this as
https://www.w3.org/2011/webschema/track/issues/12
with the summary "Comment is under UserInteractions not CreativeWork;
the former focus on aggregation". This does not capture all the
nuances but I've linked the full threads from the tracker.

Couple of brief points for now:

1. Even though we don't assert that Comment is subclass of
CreativeWork, we also don't anywhere assert that no comments are
CreativeWorks. It might be there are some idioms where treating some
comments as creative works in this way is useful.
2. Yes, Schema.org's use of plurality for class (and property) names
is unconventional. I've amended
https://www.w3.org/2011/webschema/track/issues/5 (which is about
plural usage in property names) to note the class situation needs
handling too.

Can we get a couple of sample real-world pages that can guide our
decisions here? Stéphane - do you have something from Drupal 7 maybe?

cheers,

Dan
