Wow. Maybe karma needs to be more meaningful...perhaps a reflection of who voted for you and what percentage of page views voted for you. It's not that I want to see social stratification edified on HN; but if your comment is voted for by users who have earned more karma through their own comments, shouldn't that predict that your contribution is more meaningful to the community? It might be easier to just say 'a sort of collaborative filter for karma weighting.' Even something as simple as a Pearson correlation might be fun to play with.
