Another approach would be to comment via email, and let the wiki page owner (or a gardener) manage the changes on the wiki, as well as adding the link to the email discussion to the relevant parts of the page. I share Rodolfo's concern that having everyone commenting on the wiki page itself is a bit messy. Other wiki systems (such as used by e.g. wikipedia) have proper commenting/discussion support, but without this support in the software, it's a bit harder to manage.

I have reformatted the page a bit adding Table of Contents and proper section numbers, so you can now add links in your email to the relevant section you wish to discuss.
