Isn't that a little harsh? If I know what parser I'll be using, and I
know that the stylesheets won't be going to a place where an unknown
parser is used, why not have specially-structured comments? Recall that
<xsl:template match="comment()" />
is valid in XSLT, so the Working Group must have thought that the
above would work in many common parser/processor situations, and
indeed it does.
