Just to close out another issue. The schema.org partners resolved
today, on the basis of these discussions and the materials in the
wiki, to move ahead with the proposal described in


* Add a 'Comment' type, a subclass (e.g. like Review) of CreativeWork.
"A comment on an item - for example, a comment on a blog post."
* Clarify that the existing UserComments class represents the
UserInteraction event that creates it.
* Add a 'text' property to the CreativeWork class, whose value is the
Text of the work (and hence of the comment); loosely analogous to the
'audio' and 'video' properties of CreativeWork.

I have closed https://www.w3.org/2011/webschema/track/issues/12
accordingly, and actioned myself to reflect this consensus into a
change request at schema.org.

Thanks everyone for the design discussions and advice,
