Does that really make it a moot point?  I believe that allowing voting
would indirectly encourage users to also add worthless comments, usually
without having read previous comments in the bug.  (e.g. "It's so
annoying to not have this feature.  I think that GNOME should have had
this ability in Gnome 2.0, why does it still not have this
functionality?")  Of course, additional comments need to be read in case
they contain useful information, but I believe that turning on voting
would make this harder as I think that it would increase the noise.  And
I think there's already a high noise to signal ratio in the comments
(but then again, maybe that's just my opinion as a bugsquadder who looks
for noise in bugzilla in order to try to remove/reduce it).
