You may have to dig deep, the sentence was there when this section was first
added in 2004, this is the first time I encountered it:
https://www.w3.org/TR/2004/WD-xpath20-20040723/#ExplicitWhitespaceHandling

I'd have to guess, but since comments are typically allowed where ignorable
whitespace is allowed, this sentence may have been added with an intended
meaning such as:

"Comments are allowed between terminals, but not between terminals or anywhere
within productions marked ws:explicit. Typically, comments are allowed where
whitespace is allowed, but not were we use the explicit production S.".
