Hmmm.... Can't you change the output template to include the $WORDS variable
as a form argument to the links produced by the search?
AFAIK, adding parameters to a request for an HTML file will not do anything
strange. You can then have PHP look for these words when they are passed
in. (The link to the "comments" form would have to be created by php code in
the FAQ entry itself...)

Does this make any sense at all? :-)
