... that we need this.

In exactly the same line of sight, I'm using the following already for (pure)
LaTeX -- I mean, not yet integrated within Org --:

#+begin_src latex
% must be loaded after url and hyperref
\RequirePackage[colorinlistoftodos]{todonotes}% (not in medium TeX Live 

\newcommand{\mycomment}[2][]{% initials of the author + note in the margin
    {\setstretch{0.7}% spacing
    \textbf{Comment [\uppercase{#1}\themycomment]:}~#2}}

\newcommand{\mytodo}[2][]{% title in bold + note
\textbf{TODO [\uppercase{#1}\themycomment]:}~#2}}}

This is using the package =todonotes= which is, euh, excellent!  Just have a
look, and you see that, with the above chunk of code, we can easily manage:

- mycomment :: margin notes (more for a comment, IMHO) and
- mytodo :: inlined notes (more for "inline tasks", IMHO).

Of course, this should now be automagically used by Org, as you do explain
