I hacked together something like this a while ago when I needed to add
inline-comments that would later be exported as odt-comments (but I also
made it work for latex).

I chose to implement it via a unicode-bracket ❰❙❱, like this:

❰Simple comment❱
❰Text that is commented on❙Comment❱
❰[Author] Simple comment❱
❰Commented text❙[Author] Comment❱

These are inserted with a custom command to make it easy (including an
author-history-list selectable with helm).

I've put it up in a gist if anyone finds it useful:
