Hi Richard,

   Providing support for non-XML comments. Period.

   Well, what you is all valid if there's a world of one standard format / view.

   There are two ways to look at anything:

 -- Standards/Specifications: Everything is uniform, behaving in same
way. No "separate" extensions lest they make way into specifications.
 -- Custom/Personal: One's own favourite, providing extensibility. May
lead to breaking interop but may be providing enhanced non-standard

  IE provides several non-Javascript1.2 enhancements. People love
them. Mozilla works right on standards. People still love them... but
some wished those enhancements of IE.

  I hope you get the core idea. :-)
