[imps] Extending the tree builder test format to cover test annotations

I've been writing some tree construction tests to get better coverage on
a C HTML5 parser, and since I've been writing them fairly methodically,
I have been annotating each one with what it intends to test.  I've done
this like:

<!DOCTYPE html><body></body></html><!--x-->
This tests that comments in "after after body" are appended to the
Document object.
| <!DOCTYPE html>
| <html>
|   <head>
|   <body>
| <!-- x -->

So I propose adding a #comments section to tests that should just be
skipped over by tools unless the test fails.

Opinions?  Anything that lets me annotate tests would be helpeful, I'm
not too fussed on syntax.
