The other commentary system that I am familiar with, Disqus, allows an edit at any time.
The good part of that is the ability to correct errors you see later. The bad part is that you can retrospectively change a comment that someone else has replied to "as is" and in good faith. That in turn might be fine if it is to correct a factual error or broken link - the original poster can change the mistake so it doesn't confuse others. But in other cases someone might mischievously change their comment to make the reply look silly.
If possible, edits could be allowed up to the point a reply is posted?
