I understand what you mean, but suspect it will only really work for
verse-by-verse commentaries.  Just imagine what a MHC would look like
(every now and then there would be one verse with comments on a
section that would take several screens).

You also want commentaries that are editable to still be editable
(in-place) when you are displaying them with a Bible.
