Let me clarify.

Current state of affairs is: Org ignores `use-hard-newlines'
Proposed: Org sometimes ignores `use-hard-newline' and sometimes not.

I do believe that what you suggest is a good idea (respecting
`use-hard-newlines' when filling). However, I notice that some people
may be more confused if we implement this FR compared to the existing
situation. So, I am asking for feedback from other users instead of
accepting the FR.

# This is
# a comment

This is a
comment block.

See 13.6 Comment Lines section of the manual.

I do not see why `use-hard-newline' should affect normal paragraphs but
not comments.
