Right, they are automatic comments, like fuzzy markers (with "#,") or
line numbers (with "#:").

Yes, if you look at the sources of the gettext program, you will see
that messages have a field for source comments (tagged by "#.") and
another one for translator comments ("# ").  PO editor authors do not
seem to look at these sources, it sounds very strange to me.

Dealing with only one type of comments is certainly much simpler, but
then source comments should IMO be displayed.
Did you find valuable translators' comments? ;)
When translating into French we try to follow Christian's Debconf
Templates Style Guide
and thus knowing the templates type is important; e.g. descriptions of
boolean or string templates do not follow the same rules.
