Not having tried to use MultiMarkdown for comments, but knowing that they work for including
raw latex, I can't see why they shouldn't work for html as comments.

I ran this test:

---- MMD document:
## comment test html
<!-- Man I really need some deep thoughts about this -->
To comment or not comment is a question about reflection.

-- Resulting html:
<h2 id="commenttesthtml">comment test html</h2>

<!-- Man I really need some deep thoughts about this -->

<p>To comment or not comment is a question about reflection.</p>

If an idea can survive a bureaucratic review
