I wouldn't want to allow people screw up others' comments, making it look  
that other users wrote what they didn't write. So, yes, it's important  
that any code within a comment cannot change anything but itself. This  
also means that the comment should be unable to change the header/footer  
around it to pretend that someone else wrote it.
