very interesting observation!

- since JSON does not support comments, and
- since we have come up with an allowable approach for comments inside an X3D scene graph that allows round-trip support with other encodings,


- we probably ought to deliberately avoid capturing or including any comments in the JSON encoding that might appear outside the "X3D" object declaration.

all the best, Don
