I think it would be very useful to be able to convert an answer into a comment (or vice versa).
Both Stack Overflow and OSQA can do this and is a very handy feature that I would certainly use a lot as a moderator
Answer into a comment - a couple of problems - what to do if the answer has fancy formatting or too long?
Should be a threshold on the length of answer that can be converted to a comment? Then, comments cannot take some types of formatting - like section headings, images and such... Strip content in those cases or just refuse to repost?
Going the opposite way (comment -> answer) is not a problem.
