After offering a bounty to this question, I realize that I cannot comment on the question because I no longer have the required reputation.

Is it possible to change this behavior, so that the bounty owner can comment only on the post with the bounty irrespective of their reputation? While bounty owners are told that they'll lose privileges at the time they place a bounty, it makes sense to allow them to interact with potential answerers/commentators to help solve the problem, or at least provide additional information.

Based on our current roadmap, this isn't work that we will take on, as it doesn't coincide with functional areas that we plan to improve in the near future. We recognize that time and thought was put into this request, but unfortunately, we can't prioritize it at this time.
