I can't answer for other doctors, but I see no advantage there (although I  
see no advantage to using lists, either).

On my own blog, which also uses <article> for comments, I'm considering  
changing it from

<article>
comment by Fred on 12 Dec at 4.52
<div>comment text</div>
</article>

into

<article>
<h3>Fred said on 12 Dec at 4.52</h3>
<div>comment text</div>
</article>

so there are are headings by which comments may be navigated,
