Putting comments in an IPR file

Is there an accepted way of putting a comment into an .ipr file? We have some buildtime generated data that is written to the .ipr before we run InstallShield. I want to flag "everything below this line build generated". Any stand alone comment (i.e.; // comment -or- # comment) shows up in the IDE as a filegroup (or wherever the comment happens to occur.)

I tried the following, and it seems to work;

Everything below this line is build generated

This seemed to work, and InstallShield was still able to parse the file without complaining.

Does anyone know if using such a comment in the .ipr would be detrimental in any way?

Thanks in advance,

It's not documented, so it may or may not cause problems. This may even change with a service pack. Also the program may re-arrange the lines in the .ipr
