+1 to the overall sentiment (broadened to deleting attachments from  
JIRA), but I'm -1 to preventing editing of comments unless it has a  
grace period of at least 15 minutes. Despite the preview (which many  
haven't found), unexpected formatting quirks and unintended assertions/ 
offense are common; such a policy would harm clarity and generate  
noise. Even for attachments, if someone accidentally discloses private  
data, they shouldn't need to leave it exposed while they beg a project  
admin to remove it.

Community standards don't always need automated controls. -C
