If I'd need to write my own parser to write an editor for it, that's
one thing--but I hope I wouldn't need to create yet another ad hoc
caption format, mirroring the features of this one, just to work
around a lack of inline comments.

The cue text already vaguely resembles HTML.  What about <!-- comments
-->?  It's universally understood, and doesn't require any new escape
