No, it's not; anyone can put a "Comment:" (or other) fields there.
If PGP doesn't know about the field, then it'll complain, but the
verification will work. Notice that those fields are NOT included in
the signing process.

One could, if they were independently signed. I don't see what the
purpose would be however.

There can be more than one Comment: lines there, so you can break the
object to multiple lines.

I don't see how this relates to SPKI really. If you have further
questions, could we take this off-line ?
