Comments section in official packages website

Hi, I did a quick search and did not found this issue being discussed before, so...
Would it be not useful to have a comment section for each package just like the aur does in its website?

It's more informal, users can just ask if problem X is related to a bug in the program, package or if its the user fault. You (arch devs) don't want to waste time finding that out. If it's a package bug then the issue gets promoted to the bug tracker.

There's already other places for comments, like the mailing lists, this forum, or IRC. If you're worried on maintainers wasting time, this is is a pretty efficient method - users discuss between themselves if there's an actual issue, and if so, post a summary as bug report for the maintainer to check.
