I have one (or maybe two) links to a local news channel in one of my hubs, and I've added another link in the comment section to an update on the story. Conceivably, I might want to add additional links to this site as the story continues to develop. Do links I add in the comments count for the 2-per-domain limit in your hub?
News sites aren't usually considered promotional, so, like Wikipedia, we don't usually limit the number of links to them.
Addressing the more general question, if a user is abusing the comments section to add extra promotional links to their hub, that may be considered overly promotional.
