comments on RSS feeds

I see comments on RSS feeds (look at the last few posts of natfriedman_rss, for example). The original source doesn't see the comments. Ideally, we'd have some intra-site protocol for submitting comments, but I'm not holding my breath that that will happen anytime soon.

Couldn't we (on trackback-supporting sites) put a trackback to the LJ comment each time someone comments? It's a gross hack, but it's sorta what trackback is for...

(I could implement this if it's deemed a good idea, which is why I'm not bringing this up on suggestions.)

Update: or Pingback, which is arguably better. The hard part is that our comments to RSS feeds disappear after a few weeks. (Both systems talk about "permalinks", which we don't have...)
