Yeah, but it's quite simple to use a little javascript to reformat the 
comment area correctly. And if you add it inside a <script /> tag in 
that hook, it happens right then and can be quite fast.

Of course, if they turn of JS, it'll still be ugly and below the button, 
but it'll work still.

Search for "function get_option" in the WordPress files. It allows you 
to store arbitrary data (there are similar functions for retrieving, 
updating, and deleting too.)
