Not sure how common

They do seem to be more common on large films like Silence of the Lambs or Pirates. Still there are some directors like Spielberg who don't like them and won't do them. many films have actor audio commentaries though and they are inexpensive and easy to produce.

I'm glad others like the EE and I think that's great. It's just for me it's the one thing I really wanted. It's kind of like buying a car: some things you want in a car, others you don't care. It comes down to personal taste. I think it's a shame though it wasn't added.

I find this line instructive:

from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_commentary

"The 2007 DVD for The Fountain did not include a commentary track because Warner Bros. did not feel that adding one would help sales. However, director Darren Aronofsky recorded a commentary track on his own and made the track available for free download on his personal website.[4]"
