In Layer properties / tab fields : Viewing all lines and not only first line of fields comments would be great help to really use comment on fields of databases formats.
See screenshot with truncated text.
For other data sources, what about allowing to edit text, and store it in qgs file / qml file? Could be nice too to easily document datas. (Using ISO 19110 catalogs is quite.. painfull actually)

Here is a screenshot. Actually, QGIS shows two first lines. No way to scroll down..

Hi François, it's a pleasure to meet you here!.
I didn't get is19110 plugin on oslandia repo. is that still under developpement? I'm really interested in testing it.
- Does your plugin offer a QGIS UI to view ISO 19110 generated record (with different templates) or is that only a tool to ease xml generation?

- When you ask:

"Extra-feature Some other features could be added later to the plugin:
attribute definition: could we extract that info from a Postgres COMMENT ?" 

I think you'd better extract qgis comment for field, which could be filled by qgis data provider, or stored in QGS project by user editing for data sources that do not have abiolities to store comments
