More badges for comments / Bronze and gold versions of "Pundit"

I don't know about you, but I do see comments which are so good, they get massively upvoted.

I was wondering, if we had a badge for answers with lots of up-votes, why don't we have such a badge for comments?

E.g., comment with 40 upvotes gets a silver badge called "rhetoric?" and a comment with 80 up-votes gets a gold badge...?

What do you think?

Pundit not doing it for you? –  random Jul 26 '11 at 1:08
But Pundit is a little different. It counts the number of comments over a certain amount, but I'm thinking about a badge for a single comment that gets a lot of up-votes –  Thursagen Jul 26 '11 at 1:10
To be pragmatic about it, you should check and see how many existing comments would actually qualify for your badges as specified. Also, should there be a time limit under which to garner votes, as lots of old comments still get upvotes. –  jonsca Jul 26 '11 at 1:25
According to data.stackexchange.com, there are 349 comments with 80 upvotes and 1201 with 40 upvotes (query). –  ughoavgfhw Jul 26 '11 at 1:54
