Editors marking words and sentences that need
attention<c.glenn>***</c>, commenting on word selection
<c.glenn>choice?</c>, and so on<c.glenn>etc</c>.  Having to move these
comments out-of-line with line comments is a pain.  I'm not sure what
you mean by "80%"--most features are used less than 80% of users--but
this is definitely very commonly used with the SSA file format.

(A practical annoyance is spaces; for example, the above would be
rendered as "and so onetc."  I guess a :before { content: " " } would
work well enough.)
