 returns false for non-logged-in users.

 True, but we still need to cover our bases for a private post.

 > Since we don't allow comments on "pending" despite capability, there's
 no reason to allow them on "future," right?

 Hypothetically, pending status is a type of draft status, while future is
 a form of a published post. I don't think there are other restrictions (in
 wp-comments-post, admin-ajax, the comments template, etc.) on commenting
 on a future post just as long as they have capabilities to see the post.
