[wp-xmlrpc] AtomPUB Comment Moderation?

Linking back to parents is done with <thr:in-reply-to/> in the public  
feed-atom-comments, following the comment_parent column;

<thr:in-reply-to ref="guid-of-post" href="web-permalink-to-post"   
type="text/html" />

I don't see any method of discovering the inverse relationship,  
however. The public feed-atom-comments has some elements of a  
Searchable Collection, in that the search query is honored, so one  
could ask for all comments on a given post easily enough.
