What exactly does "colophon" mean?

I think the idea is a great one, and will be adding
.colohpon {display:block ! important}
to my personal UA style sheet next time I update it.

My only worry is that using this system results in an unpleasant experience
to the many many people who use older, non-css browsers, since they don't
hide the "experts-only" comments.

sources too. I put many silly comments there which I wouldn't want the
casual guy to browse into...

LOL!!! I have only really started using workarounds since I started coding
CSS1 (three letters: IE3).

Well, back to the serious stuff now...
