Killing two birds with one stone here, sorry.

Actually, Commenting is possible in Reader alone.

 From Adobe:
"Commenting tools are available in Adobe Reader only if the author of  
the PDF document has allowed commenting in the document. The  
commenting tools are on two toolbars: the Commenting toolbar and the  
Drawing Markups toolbar."

So that means that at least the creator must have Acrobat Pro. The  
assumption is that the creator will be using Distiller instead of,  
say, PDFLaTeX.
