There's no reason why an extension
couldn't add an xmlish tag, like
<htmlcomment>, which inserts an HTML comment and protects against IE
conditional comments and similar constructs as appropriate. But unless
someone can come up with an important application, I don't think it needs
to be in the core.
I don't know any important application. But any code lenguaje benefict from
a system to make comment*.
Like, maybe the sysntax is hard or you want to make a cavet for others.
What maybe is not need, is to generate a output of that comments. So
<comment>This template url is broken, don't change it</comment>
in "" (nothing) on the html output. That way you also avoid evil uses of
comments, like IE conditionals. Or "invisible comments edit wars".
*: Even the ugly SQL support comments, so,... why no the wiki sintax?
We have such a feature already, the syntax is <!-- -->, like in HTML.
