Once we start using pull requests it's basically impossible to have comments on the Jira.
I would also prefer comments to be on the jira, but that's not a reasonable workflow with
pull requests IMHO.

What happens with PRs that don't have a Jira ticket reference in their subject?

Yeh, doing this hurts reviewabliity, as does adding more commits to the branch. If you make
review changes, then the right approach is to squash those changes into their final presentation
form and force push the branch again. I'm pretty sure that github does the right thing with
force push. It is hard to review changes that are not in their final presentation form; I
end up just downloading the whole PR as a patch and applying locally.

i.e. one place to look for comments / discussion threads.
