Where is:

- examples how comments currently "in-the-wild" indicate their parentage?
- examples of the impact proposed changes modify existing markup?

Here's the "comment problem" [1] as stated on the Wiki:

| Shortform: How do you track blog comments you've made?
| Longform: How do track the comments you have made on blogs, comments
made on blogs your interested in and comments other people have made
on your own blog?
| How can you do this in a way that can be programically represented,
ingested into some kind of datastore, searched or aggregated?

In case you're missing where the "feed" is, here's the definition of
feed [2] - it's a bucket for containing entries, further discussed
here [3]. Given that _every single example_ has that bucket, I'm not
sure why you think it's critical to ignore it, even given the problem
