It is special only at the beginning of a headline (but past TODO keyword
and priority cookie, if any).

Considering COMMENT is primarily export related, one option would be to
make `org-agenda-skip-comment-trees' to nil as a default. In this case,
it might not even be necessary to document this variable in the manual.


I'll just say that once I learned about COMMENT -- from the list, not from the manual -- I started using it pretty extensively.  Also, the Github org-->html renderer hides COMMENT trees by default.  For these reasons, I think the current default is sensible.  But yeah, it should be documented.
