I suggest to allow a user to edit a threaded comment's title after the threaded comment has been published,

This way, if a user published the threaded comment but forgot to add a title or didn't notice the "buried" title field under the body, than that user could always create it and/or change it afterwards.

I think it's reasonable for the person who created the thread to be able to edit the title so long as the only comments are from that user. As soon as there's a comment from someone else, though, there's the chance that changing the thread title can affect context for those comments (or even can be changed destructively), and -- unlike with posts -- readers can't audit these edits.
