Often I am seeing suggested edits that should be comments. E.g.

Edited does not work in when i pass button in withObject..

Added at the end of a post

Can we have some easy way to convert a suggested edit into a comment and/or a suggested comment system.

If the suggested edit is by the OP & is clarification on the question, it should be approved as an edit. Otherwise it should be flat out rejected. –  Sathya Jul 29 '11 at 9:23

Sometimes, it would be a useful commnet like "xxx did not work for me" so that other people did not spend a long time trying to do what the answer says. –  Ian Ringrose Jul 29 '11 at 10:01

Ditto this: these comments are sometimes worth saving. For the really good ones I've started adding a comment myself, linking to the user and suggested edit and quoting the change, but the workflow could be easier. If the user makes a single contiguous addition to the text it'd be useful to have the option of converting it to a comment attributed to that user. (but I realise this is possibly a corner case and there's bigger problems to deal with, e.g. all these "improve formatting" editors who bold random words and code-tag others.) –  Rup Feb 22 '12 at 15:18
