Notes from Jeff:
modify fields UI to work more natively with comments, and hide ancillary fields by default. https://skitch.com/jeff.noyes/8bdqk/dreamweaver
Change node/vertical tab layout (and rename features to be less technical, e.g. threaded): https://skitch.com/jeff.noyes/8bdxq/dreamweaver
The above changes create this comment authoring experience: https://skitch.com/jeff.noyes/8bdtg/dreamweaver
