Using 'Comment' functionality requires history... why?

Hi,

We are thinking of using the comment option of Activiti. Comments are however only stored in history tables. So we actually need the history configuration to be at least 'activity'. We do not want this for several reasons
- Performance/Storage of process history information (that we do not need)
- We need to implement houskeeping (which we do not want)
- Even if we 'delete' the processInstance via the api, the comments are not cascadingly deleted

Is there a specific reason for this? We could start 'abusing' process variables, but I do not like that…

(using 5.10-'SNAPSHOT')
