Often I get comments which can neither be approved, because they are personal and directed to me only, nor can they be deleted, because they are important. I don't like to defer them either because a. they very soon tend to clutter up the queue and b. they have a tendency to inadvertently get approved. These are the comments I want to reply to in my own time. In an email client I have a special folder where I archive such action items.

Yes, there are plenty of hooks in place for this. A plugin should be
perfect for this behavior.
