My confusion was that I was inserting the xml section into an <xsl:comment> element, rather than a no-namespace-prefix <comment> element. Now that I've cleared up that bit of mental muddle, I'm proceeding along the path suggested by Michael Kay, namely, use a bit of post-processing to swap the <comment></comment> for <!-- -->.
Since the whole shebang is orchestrated through ant, it's a trivial matter to insert another task in the processing stream to make the swap.
Thanks for your interest.

That being "It creates a comment, just like xsl:element creates an element."
That might make my point a little clearer.
