Parent article: A quick LWN update
Well, two things come to mind.
First, if you added, for example, an id="comment.1.2.3" attribute to the existing comments' <div> tags (meaning in this case "the 3rd reply to the 2nd reply to the 1st comment"), then each comment could have it's own URL. That way I could send a note to my bos that says "Hey, I posted a really clever comment on LWN; check out http://lwn.net/Articles/35049/#comment.1.1.1 to see what I said about you."
Second, if you did the above, then the "Comments (27 posted)" link at the bottom of an article could point directly to, say, "http://lwn.net/Articles/34740/#comment.1". After all, I probably just read the article, so why should I have to scroll down through it to get to the first comment. If you followed this scheme, I wouldn't have to scroll.
