True; it regards a "paragraph" as a series of non-blank lines, and  
merges them.

Yes, that's one of the possible enhancements I thought about. It gets  
a bit tricky, though, given the possibilities of escaped % signs, etc.  
(So \% doesn't start a comment.... but \\% does.... etc.)

In general I think of this kind of re-wrapping as being appropriate  
for simple paragraphs of plain text, where there aren't normally  
embedded comments. If you've been breaking the text into lines and  
commenting them individually, then applying re-wrap probably doesn't  
make much sense.
