I talked about conformance, because I'd prefer document conformance  
be defined in such a way that conforming comments maximize  
compatibility with different parsers.

I did not say anything about how I want non-conforming comments to be  
handled, because I think Hixie has researched the issue so much more  
than I that I don't have anything educated enough to say right now.
