I wasn't responding to Daniel.  I was responding to Matt Goins, as was
shown in my message, who said he had never seen any comment that helped
him identify the owner of a key in a meaningful way.

To that statement, pointing out the ham radio community's use of comment
fields to store license numbers is on point.  Moving the goalposts to,
"but ham operators can still set comment fields with --expert," is not.
