I agree all that would be nice. While I could hack some of the extra
features to use the comment notifications table I think this is the wrong
approach. We should really try to at least start to implement the ideas in
the SOC Core notification project which includes all of these nice features.
I will turn the bug into a feature request for 2.0.1 to include item 2.

An author or an owner should be able by default to receive any comment to
article or item he created.
Also users should be able to subcribe to new comments (all comments, by
topic, by item) like on the the forum plugin. But this is another feature
We also need a comments list for admins
