"Load new comments" for MeFi mobile? Especially for tragic and topical threads.

Today's thread about the Giffords shooting reminded me how I sometimes rely on MeFi for news updates, especially when stuck on the bus, waiting for laundry to be done, etc -- moments when mobile access is key.
Since those threads tend to build up 200-300 comments quickly, would it make more sense to load new comments with Ajax rather than reloading the entire page? More like the "Load More" button Twitter used to use at the bottom of update streams?
(Keep in mind, I have no idea what is possible on a technical level. Just a feature idea I thought would be helpful. Thanks...)
