No it isn't, but it certainly matters to some.
I was thinking in terms of using a GET to show different comment pages:
Drawbacks to that as well, I'm sure, but I'm don't see them.
Wouldn't hurt end-user usability, unless you suspect many readers are
directly typing in URLs to particular comment pages.
I've been using the "paged comments" plugin on my blog for a while
now, which uses similar URLs to those produced by the new WP comment
paging, and one thing I noticed was that it made my stats all wonky
because hits on popular posts were being spread out among several
comment-page URLs. The more comment pages, the farther **down** in
Dan's suggestion of nofollow-ing the comment-page URLs is a good one,
but only a partial fix.
