Actually it's not a comment but a doc-string and if you customize
'font-lock-doc-face' you will notice.  These were part of a project of
mine to improve handling and readability of Emacs primitives'
doc-strings (including font locking, Lisp syntax with completion and
eldoc support, correct filling, exporting/importing from C to Lisp to
texinfo and the like).  But since I never managed to write some of
these components, the project has stalled.  I'll stop proliferating
that style now.

See below.

You mean 'get-buffer-create'?  I had that in a first version.  But
since you earlier expressed concerns about people abusing the extra
argument of 'generate-new-buffer' I thought 'get-buffer-create' would
be even more critical in this regard.  In either case I'll do what you
(or others) consider best.

If we do that, it would also resolve the "inconsistency" you bemoan
above.  So the answer is probably yes.

Right.  At least I show signs of consistency when adopting silly

Thanks, martin
