We can do two things:
- ignore fill-column if it's smaller than comment-column.
That's a pretty "obviously safe" choice which would solve the problem
of the OP.
- only obey fill-column if auto-fill-mode is enabled.
The second choice is an incompatible change and would force me to enable
auto-fill-mode in my programming modes (and then set
comment-auto-fill-only-comments to avoid the annoying "fill code"
behavior), but it seems reasonable.

As long as it doesn't mention comment-column, I don't see why it should
