...not sure I'm adding anything to this discussion, but we have used the various comment fields to store extra information for internal purposes - sometimes JSON format strings so it can be parsed by scripts etc. I even once managed to mod the Elasticsearch plugin so that the comment field made it into elastic, and that meant I could immediately graph the information :)
