Pony request: In an effort to save people from their own mistakes how about an extremely minimal editing ability for comments?

I guess this might be an open and shut case if the 3-minute moderating window I've seen mentioned previously becomes a real thing but if not how about letting people edit their posts/comments for grammar/spelling?
I completely understand that the onus should be on the poster but when mistakes do happen (such as a silly grammar mistake
) would it be possible to have some editing such that the message of the post couldn't be changed but one letter or character could be changed.
Simply put I see the options we currently have as follows,
A) preview and proofread things to death to ensure zero errors get through
b) contact the mods for typographical edits everytime
c) employ some new feature/policy such as the 3 min rule or something like what I'm talking out here or
d) let them slide and don't worry about them.
A would be ideal if people were without flaw, sadly Adam/Eve took care of that for us.
B seems to be a bit asinine and I'm hesitant to bother mods with trivial mini-pony requests, I don't know about others.
C is what we're talking about.
D is probably the easiest option, which makes it obviously wrong.
