rather than making them jump through hoops for no great reason, it might
have some advantage that could be leveraged to replace or augment the
Also, it's somewhat implausible to expect that the comment form is going
to look a certain way on every blog - inserting a new field into that
mix via plugin would be difficult or ugly. Using an existing field
would be ideal.
