    another reason to use <!-- --> comments is that in almost 
    all editors they are highlighted (or better lowlighted...) 
    so are much easier to recognize and differentiate from 
    actual content.
    using elements in another namespace (even a special doc 
    namespace) would somehow pollute the content i think.

Or document the content?

    i guess an element as <annotation> in XML Schema is there 
    for a purpose but probably not to make the Schema better 
    maintainable which I think the main purpose comments in 
    general are for.

I'd suggest that the annotation element is for annotations?

XML comments are one thing.
XML documentation is another, and can be used as either metadata,
content documentation or a host of other things, using xml tools.

XML comments have far less utility IMHO.

Just my 0.02Euros.
