I’ve got a virtual field I want to submit with a form or lifecycle transition but not have it stored in the database

I have a feeling that I have read something about this earlier, but cannot seem to find the information anywhere.

I have a model that is using states and transitions. Now, when certain transitions take place I need the user to supply a comment. This comment is not the same model, and I cannot seem to figure out how to include it. After transition is submitted this comment should also be persisted.

I also have a couple of places where I consider adding view-only fields to the transition. Fields that are not to be persisted, but used as logics in the transition block.
