Contact Forms: add 3rd party form fields, field authentication, error messages

There is already Akismet support built into Contact Forms. There should also be hooks to allow other plugins to add visible and hidden fields to the contact form, and hooks to allow those fields to be authenticated. If the field authentication fails a custom error message can be generated, and form submission can be stopped until the error is corrected. Gravity Forms and Contact Form 7 have these hooks.
Saving the added fields to the database, and sending them via email, should be optional.
If this hooks were added, then I could add spam blocking support for Jetpack Contact Form into Simple Comments. I would like to do the same for Jetpack comments.
