Well, we had X-directives in CTM
but they were removed in Montreal. You could have used such directives
to do anything you want.
I am afraid, that they are removed eternally (at least for version
1.0), but you can, for example, use special comments
and you'll get the same effect (ignored by all parsers which are
unaware of the special syntax). Ugly, but works :)
