Disappointment with groovy/XmlSlurper

Greatest disappointment with groovy/XmlSlurper: it does not read/interpret XML comments. Quite critical for massive XML processing/transformations, when it is necessary to keep change delta to minimum.
In the last project I had to recede to JDOM2 – it reads, interprets and writes XML comments without problems. Sad, volume of code doubles compared to XmlSlurper.
