 I thought private posts were already covered?

 > 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.

 Currently you have to be able to edit a particular future post in order to
 view it (in WP_Query); it seems to me that more reasonable check for
 allowing a comment on a future post would be "read_post," but that would
 involve changing the "read_post" logic.  This gets complicated...
