Those are excellent points. I withdraw my suggestions for '#' and '<!-- -->'.

> // occurs in 2229/65643 files.

This makes me think // is a really bad idea too. I like just using plain text
either within a cue before the timerange, or on its own as a heading, for
one-line comments. Makes it harder to add extensions later, though.

So, what about just '/* */'? What's the use case for being able to comment out
blocks? I can see it's great for testing, but does that justify all
forgot-to-terminate and un-escaped '/*' blanking the rest of the subtitle file?
