No comments on context variables in generated job documentation

Since I have to document my Data Integrations jobs I appreciate the automtic generation of job docu in Talend Studio. Now I look at the section "Context List" in a generated documentation (html) and see a table with the columns: Name, Prompt, Need Prompt, Type, Value, Source. What I miss is "Comment". If I maintain some comments in contexts at job or repository level, I'd like to find those comments in the generated documentation!

Because "Prompt" is visible in the documentation you could put comments there. But in the tab "context" of the job-designer that column "Prompt" is only visible if the checkbox "need prompt" is checked. And who uses different prompts for one variable in different environments (aka "context name")? (The Studio encourages different prompts per environment.)

Take it as feature request: add the comment to the auto generated context documentation, please.
