It'd require some custom development, but it'd be possible to load comments
via javascript - basically to build your own Disqus.  I do something like
this on my blog.  It grabs the page name/path from the URL, and uses that
as a key to fetch comments out of a database and display them on the page.
  Now the comments are stored elsewhere and the page in git has some
boilerplate javascript to load the comments.  You can even let uses
markdown-style their comments.
