What most of those wishing this feature miss is the conversion of a 
comment and all its replies to a forum/story, etc. node. That is a 
simple text container to another simple text container, but cropping out 
part of a comment tree, and making the first comment a node. This does 
not involve complex node types, since the starting point is a text 
container and the resulting node is also a simple one.
