re take
The comments in this thread have also been unanimous in their ignorance of the .NET Framework machine.config file format. 
Seriously, if someone posted a message to XML-DEV about how they planed to process the XHTML on the W3C site by using the whitespace between elements which demarcates regions in the document, will we also see the same outpouring of recrimination against the W3C website authors for having "whitespace that demarcates regions" in their XML documents? 
This entire thread is very silly.

The comments in the XML may have been put there for human-legibility, but
they've certainly got a meaning that machines may want to get at, hence
Dominica's question. The comments in this thread have been pretty unanimous
in condemming the use of XML comments to demarcate regions of the data for
processing. Maybe 'shame' was too strong - perhaps better just to suggest
this gets refactored before the final release.
