<snip>That use case is describing a solutions database rather than a
[conventional] help system.</snip>

Definitely unconventional -- I agree! :)

Adding user comments to the help implies that new information is being
added, and that it should be shared via one server to many clients. Help is
usually client side.

I read the original post as a need for a user to annotate help for their own
use, not to share the annotations with all other users (which sounds more
like a messageboard to me). I'm suggesting deploying the help on a server,
with a script that saves a user's comments on their local (client) machine,
for their use only.
