Sorry, I don't see this ....  You can put
<EntryComments>...<EntryComments> around comments, independent of
ordering or nesting. To spell it out explicitly, e.g. and assuming
EntryComments is physicalized using "hfeed comments"

<div class="hentry">
   ... this is the blog post ...
   <div class="hfeed comments">
      ... the comments in hentrys whatever order ...

Regards, etc...
