Thanks for your persistence!

We agreed last week to go ahead with the Comment proposal. As part of
this it will add a 'text' property to the CreativeWork class. See
www.w3.org/wiki/WebSchemas/Comment  : "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."

Would this help with your use case here?
