preprocess_comment should get the normalised comment data
|Reported by:||westi||Owned by:|

In wp_new_comment we normalise some data like user_ID/user_id so that we support people providing both versions but we fire the filter to preprocess the comment first.
This means if someone writes a filter they have to re-implement this normalisation if they want to filter the comment data properly.
An example of where this currently goes wrong is when Akismet tries to fetch the roles of the user submitting the comment - http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/akismet/tags/2.5.7/akismet.php#L332
This only works if the comment comes via a route that supplies the data correctly and not one that doesn't.
