I think showing the audit log comments in a more prominent place could increase the use of this function.You might also consider showing the change commentary when the user has been asked for reasons why they changed the record. This would also resemble the new table in the Documents module.
The comments could be for example presented at the top of each record, similar to new Related Records feature.
The downside here is of course is that it would add material to the top of the record, but this could be perhaps overcome with some clever design.
By default the comments would be invisible if there are none.
John Smith (25/01/2015 at 4PM): "I don't think it's necessary to take the second action detailed in this record. We can come back to that next year."
Patty Marr (26/01/2015 at 5PM): "Yes, I agree. I would recommend removing that action."
John Smith edited record at stage Action Details (26/01/2015 at 6PM): "Deleted the second action and added a note to our quality objectives about returning to this next year"
