Comment (by rachelbaker):

 Update: @aaroncampbell and I discussed how we can move forward with this
 ticket in the [https://wordpress.slack.com/archives/core-
 comments/p1462986451000296 #core-comments] Slack channel.


 The biggest issue with tackling this ticket remains the UI presentation.

 Specifically answers to questions such as:
 - Should each custom comment type get it's own section within the
 WordPress dashboard menu, like registering a custom post type?
 - If we don't allow comment type menu sections, should all registered
 comment types be included in the current Comments list table?  Or should
 there be different list tables for each custom comment type?

 We are going to start with a proof of concept for an API that allows
 custom comment types to be registered, `register_comment_type()`, which
 borrows heavily from the prior art in `register_post_type()`.  The proof
 of concept will begin as a plugin, already setup by @aaroncampbell on
 Github: https://github.com/aaroncampbell/custom-comment-types/ and the
 .org repo: https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-comment-types/
