I can't get to the JISCPress site at the moment, but I have edited a document someone else has put up using digress.it.  It works well for commenting on individual paragraphs, or even at a sub-section level.  For more extensive comments at a section level, it would probably make sense to have them posted to a public mailing address.

I haven't hosted a document with digress.it yet, but from what I understand it takes a stock WordPress installation where custom plugins can be installed.  It isn't clear to me how wikitext could be imported into the WordPress database, but it couldn't be too hard, could it?

However, I also thought that it encouraged a bit too much fine-grained commenting: I did not find it easy to send (or to follow) more elaborate forms of comments, that would touch on several points at a same time...
