Whats the point in having a Q&A section on hubpages if your comments to answers are so limited?
Some comments require more space to answer and or make a point. And since this is the place we ask and answer questions, it should be less restricted.
Answers are allowed 2500 characters, which is more than adequate to answer the majority of questions.
Comments are restricted to 250 characters, because they're not answers to questions. They're comments about someone else's answer. If you have more than 250 characters to write about someone else's answer, you should be writing your own answer, instead of commenting on theirs.
And, of course, if either of those are too limited, you could always answer by writing a hub.
The guidelines also are efficient for the learning process. One learns with character count how to formulate thoughts and cohesively write those. Good practice for writing and its applications - comment, answer, hub, and etc.
