Allow XAML nested comments
Support nested comments in XAML.
When trying things out I often comment out whole blocks of XAML.
This does not work if such a XAML block already contains commented lines.
XAML should be a well formed XML document for our parsers to work. Nested comments are something that is not supported by the XML standard. An alternative approach would be to split the commenting such that the required block of XAML is commented but will be split into multiple commented blocks so that the resulting document is well formed.

Commenting is a real pain with XML in any case. They must not want comments to xml in principle.

I understand the problem with well formed XML, but this is an implementation detail.
Nested XAML comments would be a very helpful feature to have. Maybe one of your devs can come up with a creative solution.
