me neither, yet still, it might be a good idea to just document 
this quite well, AND maybe add a log at info level stating this

This keeps on being a very arbitrary choice, so given the 
principle of least astonishment adding enough warings about this 
here and there should be the least we can do

although my biggest astonishment would come from someone that 
actually has an app relying on this.

For that manner (and while at it): "why not make it configurable 
to even do away with all comments at the start?"  The only ones I 
see usefull to keep are in fact the ones that get inserted in 
mid-pipe (transformer) by some xslt for debugging purposes...
