Yes, it's planned, but I cannot give you a specific ETA. I think it will be
in the 3.0 just because it's a new feature and 2.2.x is in hotfix process.

That's right, using edges you can do the live query on the comment and then
fetch the post navigating the edge backwards. It already works.

No, unfortunately it's all to be implemented. The LiveQuery result sends
back single records, so it just lacks the information about the position in
the sorted result. We have to do some little changes on that.
