I too think this is a must.  It may not quite accord with the personal 
tastes of the CaML implementors, but many good programmers use this
extensively in their in-line documentation.  I figure they should be 
able to transfer their "existing practice" when they make the switch to 
CaML, just to make the switch as painless as possible.
