[whatwg] <comment> element

Browsing the web with user-submitted comments hidden sounds like a good  
use case. There are extensions that do that in various browsers:


Even if we agree that a nested <article> can be a comment, there is no  
guarantee that every nested <article> is a comment. Thus "browsing with  
comments hidden" cannot be implemented by hiding nested article elements  
(there's no indication whether nested articles are comments, or nesting  
was done with other purpose in mind).

Therefore I suggest we paint this shed with:

<article type="comment">
