It really bothers me when a comment on a question is not about the question itself but some meta discussion like whether it should have a tag or not. I think it would be best to have some kind of metacomment for each question that could be displayed at a slightly different place than the other comments, or maybe they could have another color, or an option to hide them. What are the pros and cons?

    Why is the existence of that comment so bothersome? And why would making it more prominent be less bothersome? – animuson Oct 12 '14 at 20:58

We don't need anything as permanent as a meta question for things like the tags a question should have etc.

These are transient things and once the problem has been sorted out, can and should be deleted.

Meta questions should be reserved for something more substantial - whether the question should be reopened etc.
