Right now we send you off (or you have to right click and open new tab) the Workboard to view the task, but not when editing. Some people may prefer to stay on the board at all times, see all properties, comments, and leave a comment without leaving the board.

If I comment on task I almost always need to review the previous comments made. That would mean loading the entire task comment/history into a dialog which doesn't seem meaningful. The only case for "commenting from a dialog" that I can imagine is if you need to poke it for an update without seeing previous history - doesn't sound like a strong use-case. Creating/editing is modifying the task state vs. the discussion happening on the task, which makes a little more sense to have in the context of a dialog/popover.
I do agree that commenting is usually done after reviewing the existing history. The concern expressed to me was that the extra navigational steps to get back to the workboard after commenting on a ticket were less pleasing than simply having a popover close. The only real reference I've got for this is that Trello allows viewing of the history and commenting within a popover... not that that is any justification unto itself.
