This feature MUST be added to worpress for it to be truly useful when a blog gets allot of traffic. Imagine the big sites like Michelle malkin who gets hundreds of trackbacks. Now mix them in with your comments. What you now have is a useless comment section that no one wants to read.
Trackbacks and pingbacks MUST be able to be displayed on their own page.
There are numerous threads on this topic and no one has a real viable solution. This should be easily done with a seperate hook for trackbacks and pingbacks and a theme page for trackback.php.
I do not understand the resistence to this concept, it is pretty basic.
