I think it's a very good idea if it comes from the WGs. I can try to  
talk about it on the chairs Mailing-list. It might help to detect the  
comments, though it doesn't solve one problem which is fundamental:  
language issue.

	People usually on their weblogs write in their native language,  
which is normal. I can't try to guess for german or latine languages,  
it becomes a lot harder for chinese, russian, or other strange  
languages like Dutch ;)

But yes I agree it could be a good idea. I will propose it.
I have done it in the past. See for example
