Sounds like somewhat of a "power user feature" to me. I'd say if you 
want to work on different things at the same time, open different 
instances of JOSM ;-)

JOSM will not allow you to omit the comment, much as SVN doesn't allow 
you to commit without a message. Meaningful comments are vital to the 
usability of the whole changeset thing and while I can't (yet) force 
people to enter something meaningful, at least I want to convey to them 
the message that we really, really, really want them to enter something!
