I'm one of the original authors of the comment proposal--a proposal
that we threw together without following the process, and that was
made redundant by hAtom. I generally think simply using hAtom is
enough; a separate comment format isn't necessary.

That said, one thing to potentially look into would be the
hAtom-ification of RFC 4685, the Atom Threading Extensions[0], to
handle marking up which hentry is a reply to which other hentry.
Something along these lines might do the trick:

    <div class="hentry" id="foo">
      <a href="#comments" rel="replies">comments</a>
    <div class="hfeed" id="comments">
      <div class="hentry">
        <a href="#foo" rel="in-reply-to">...</a>
