Well the OP wants to do something with the file. It can't be done 
(it seems, I'm not so sure about that), without hacking at comments. 
Again, that suggests:

  * an abuse of the document
  * a badly designed document

take your pick.

Apples and oranges. And worse, fruitless.

Seeing as you've decided that every post in this thread is ignorant 
about machine.config, perhaps you could advise the OP on an 
appropriate course of action. We could all learn something from that.
