There are two major issues to fix for a Commons deployment - the name and the localisation.
"Article feedback" is certainly inappropriate for media files! Possible names: "media feedback"; "image comments"
Most AFT deployments are monolingual - German localisation for the German Wikipedia, etc. Commons has a multilingual readership and it would be good to invite comments in several different languages.
It seems that the messages for AFT can be drawn from a local MediaWiki namespace page. If this is the case, we may be able to use the language-switch template code to display multiple different languages in the same way we handle license templates.
