Yes, that seems to do exactly what the OP wants.

I don't like the idea of commenting out code blocks.
The code will be hard to read as code (as a comment!?)
with no font lock (or worse: the same color as the
"real" comments which are now drowned). It'll just be
bulky and in the way.

I have a better idea, and that is for the OP to split
his init file into several files all dedicated a
specific area of configuration and/or extention. The
OP mentioned 900 lines of Elisp - myself, I use
several files and very few are longer than 100 lines
(those which are often has ambitious documentation
inline which makes for a huge bulk of lines).

Besides many other advantages, in this specific
situation, one could load all the files from .emacs
(with `load-file') and then just comment out a single
line to not have a specific file loaded.
