Now that you can put a bounty on someone else question. It would be nice to be able to attach a comment to the bounty, to explain what you expect opening it. For me an important motivation of offering a bounty is that I would like some overlooked aspect of a question to be explored. It's easy to explain it in the question for your own questions, but on someone else question I feel it would be better to explain what you expect offering more exposure to a question.
This is now completed, you can add a custom bounty message at the end of the start bounty process:

This is kind of obvious, but you could simply add a comment to the question.
I disagree with this feature. The purpose of the bounty is explained in the faq.
Imagine that you have to explain why you asked a question or why you answered to a question.
If the one who gives the bounty choose to explain why, he can do it in the comments; no problem. But don't make that mandatory.
