  Octave already treats whatever follows % as a comment, so nothing

I very well know about it, what I'm actually saying is whether Octave Devs 
would consider treating "end%if" as "endif" (and so on), so it can benefit in 
terms of error diagnostic. See below about this from up-to-date documentation 

"You can use the keyword end anywhere a more specific end keyword is expected, 
but using the more specific keywords is preferred because if you use them, 
Octave is able to provide better diagnostics for mismatched or missing end
