While we're on about this, how about another slight modification; adding a "Rep" and "Num" column to show the current reputation of the node, as well as the number of replies (children) inside that node.

Also, calling it "Parent ID" is a bit misleading, since the parent of a reply wouldn't always be a root node. How about "Root ID" instead?:

    The reputation shouldn't be there for all the reasons it's not ordinarily visible from anywhere else either. I agree with the rest of the suggestions though.

    Makeshifts last the longest.

      I second the notion that reputation should remain hidden, though I think that it may have started by hacker copying his own writeup listing.
