In theory it would reduce server load since you are only updating from the server in little chunks... each comment as it comes in.
however, what happens is that the server has to keep a constant connection open for each user on a live thread... which opens up a whole new world of networking issues
(half-open connections i think is what they're called)
but yes initially less load ... i'd be interested in trying it out at least
