[User Interface and Configuration] Comment option for soamcontrol app

There are multiple teams manage apps. One team may not know why the app is disabled by another team. Hence, we request comment option for soamcontrol app command. Besides, there are comment options for both "kill session" and "kill task". It does not make sense no comment option for disable app which is a higher impact activity.
