It's a relatively easy authoring mistake to make while copy+pasting cues
around, but noticing that a single cue has gone missing in the output is very
difficult.

The current spec makes it impossible to extend the syntax in a
backwards-compatible way. The only extension it allows is commenting out
individual cues, but why would we want to do that per cue rather than
commenting out larger blocks of text with /* */ or similar?

(We also don't drop the entire cue when there are unknown settings in the
timing line or unknown/misnested tags in the cue text.)
