Sadly the IDEs I tested are not up to it.  I put the following into Visual 
Studio 2005, 2008 and 2010:

        <!-- The price is changed by the controller -->
    </BrokenMyElement> <!-- Is this the problem? -->

I selected MyElement to /BrokenMyElement and told it to comment it out. 
This yielded:

        --><!-- The price is changed by the controller --><!--
    </BrokenMyElement> --><!-- Is this the problem? --><!--

So far, so good.  I then told it to uncomment it, and it resulted in:

         The price is changed by the controller
    </BrokenMyElement>  Is this the problem?

Clearly that's failed.

I also put the above into Eclipse.  When told to comment it out it did:

    <!-- <MyElement>
         The price is changed by the controller
    </BrokenMyElement>  Is this the problem? -->

That doesn't work either.

Other IDEs may work better, although to be honest I don't think there is 
enough information in the commented out versions to make it reversible.

So leaving it up to ther IDE doesn't seem like an option.
