I've said it before and I'll say it again; the nodification of such  
objects is not a good idea for a variety of reasons. Three obvious  
reasons are: it does _not_ become easier for your users, it does  
_not_ become easier for the average developer (unless you're a Drupal  
expert, the code becomes more difficult to understand), and it will  
be an incredible resource hog.

-1 for 'comments as nodes', 'users as nodes' or 'categories as nodes'.
