A separate comment box on a separate "flag package out-of-date" page
(similar to what archweb does) to

* Allow for sending that comment alongside the notification mail.

* Allow for linking the comment to the out-of-date flag (allows TU to
  quickly check for a reason without having to read all the comments).

* Show some extra information about what "out-of-date" means.
