I for one think that allowing comments would certainly result in many devolving into a comment war, even if that wasn't the reason the question was closedlocked. There's no easy way to restrict comments to only "Please refer to this meta discussion", etc.

A better solution might be to create an automatic Meta post when the post is locked and have it auto-linked in the post notice (or perhaps posted as a comment itself), while keeping the comments locked. Hopefully there aren't so many locked posts that it would cause a lot of clutter.
