You could write a trivial preprocessor that removed elements in a
specific namespace and their descendents but left its input otherwise
unmodified. That would take care of your commenting-out requirement,

The implementation can be in XSLT or SAX filters. You can use use it
with any other vocabularies that don't define a documentation element.
