/msg me the reason of --by Jenda (Abbot)

We've all gotten some -- votes that we did not know why. A lot of people ask others to /msg them if they downvote their nodes, but I don't think it ever happens. I do not remember ever getting a "I downvoted your node Xxx because of this and this.".
And to tell the truth I never sent such a message myself either.
Don't know about others, but the reason why I did not do that is because I'm lazy. I know it's not hard to /msg someone, but still ... copying the author name, the ID of the node ...
So it might be nice to provide a small inputbox next to the vote buttons for this kind of messages. So that if you wanted to let the author of a node know that you did not like the node you'd click the --, type the reason into the inputbox and click vote!. And the node author would get a
-- on "Node title" by UserName: This looks like a homework!or in the oposite case
++ on "Node title" by UserName: Thanks, I had the some problem.message.
(Sorry if this has been proposed already.)
