Please let's not use // for comments - that would make all URLs really
unreadable.

Also, I've seen "#" used in live captioning similar to ">>" as speech markers,
though I can't find an example now.

I could live with /* */ for intra-cue comments. IIUC, right now anything inside
< and > that is not a defined tag is ignored, so that would also work, though
it's not as future-proof as a separate markup.

More important than intra-cue comments, though, is a way to comment out
complete cues. Since that creates a section, it would be best if that could be
done the same way as the sections that we need for headers for metadata, inline
cue settings, and inline CSS. I can live with the suggestion to use the "-->"
marker as a landmark to separate such sections.
