It seems that some CIF parsers retain comments. Are there people using
comments to hold pertinent information? If so, has there been any
attempt to add a general purpose comment data items? My thinking is that
the only comment that should have valid information is the CIF header
comment, and all the rest can be stripped. Are there any opinions that
comments are important to retain?
