Chip. Very astute, and thanks!

I've let the site author know she must log in via admin before 
addressing her audience via the comments form.

This must be a common problem for unsophisticated users. The admin 
doesn't know any different, because WordPress recognizes her Gravatar 
both from the admin page and the comments page, even though she's 
logging in two different ways. I wonder if WP could be made to recognize 
the two different states and serve up the bypostauthor class in each case?
