[uf-discuss] does hatom for comments make sense?

Right -- and a uF for expressing that relationship; this gets a little
trickier. As uFs are about codifying existing practices, my
(superficial) look at comment nesting shows that many sites (like
slashdot) using nesting to express relationships, not explicit URI
linking. On the other hand, threaded mail list managers do use links
to express the hierarchy.

The nice part is that this (hypothetical uF) composites with hAtom to
achieve our result; the trickier part is documenting nesting examples
to support the uF.

Regards, etc...
