There is a good reason not to allow this: it would be sabotague of 
project history. In a small case, it might be harmless, but if it's a 
core developer, imagine the potential damage to GNOME if hundreds or 
thousands of comments were to disappear from bug reports.

That is a good point and a valid concern. The mentioned corner case is
interesting and quite a clear indication that the Foundation/Project
has a large interest to prevent in bulk modification of comments.

I hope GitLab has a time limit as to how far back posts can be edited, 
to prevent this.

Interesting, I doubt that such "archival" of posts is done though. If
it is done, then I would say that the old precedence is fully
applicable to such archived posts, and the rejection of requests is
generally reasonable.

Maybe one should discuss the idea of such a time limit with Gitlab?
