Uhm. Programs do generate sieve comments, typically containing magic syntax
specific to the generator.

 Am I missing some use cases?

I think the draft would do well to suggest how magic generator-specific
syntax ought to be handled, with an example or two. Magic stuff should not
be syntactically similar to a sieve comment.


If we want to allow for magic comments, it make sense for them to be in a
separate namespace. But then magic comments are typically implementation
specific. So I unless we want to startadize them, I don't think the document
needs another namespace.
