Why I would never support that syntax for a comment is that today when I say:

   <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/>

... I know I'm getting *only* my XML content and not any comments 
that might be injected by the user.

I feel comments are benign and must stay that way.  Already I have to 
deal with modeling the xml:* attributes in my schemas ... I wouldn't 
want to have to model comments as well.

I hope this helps.
