Additional Comment Fields

Is there a way to have more than one comment section? (Like a custom filed of type comment)

We have a number of groups of people who look at and add to the one issue. 

It would suite our business if we could segregate the comments added to the ticket by each area.

I see there is an option on limiting the view of a comment by role, however this is not what we are looking for.

We still want everyone to be able to see the comments, but rather than looking though just one long stream of comments they can look in the area appropriate to their purpose.

Anyone done anything like this?

I'm afraid not - the comment section requires its own data structure within JIRA (not a complex one, but it's not a field like most of the other stuff you see on an issue).  There's no way to have more than one comment section, and I'm not aware of any addons that provide one.

Thanks for the detail. I thought I might be pushing it :).
