This answer was posted recently. Werner commented. I saw this through the LQ queue, and I commented. This motivated me for this question.
That comment template:
This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post.
seems like a -- typically correct -- remark, and nothing more. A user seeing this comment is left with "Well so what? I can't «critique» till I have enough rep?", and no knowledge of possible conversions. Perhaps we should add a sentence to the template to mention this? Something like:
I've flagged this "answer" for moderator attention, requesting it be converted to a comment to the question.
This way the user knows something is being done about this inappropriate placing. It is also unfortunate that the user of the linked answer can't yet flag…
