Understood.  I am taking your response to mean that the WG has not
decided that multi-line comments are a bad idea, but that the WG has
merely decided not to put them in the current (1.1) version of SPARQL.
If I am wrong please let me know.

Would you please add this (or should I add it directly?) to the Future
Work Items list for consideration in the next version?

Thanks,
David
