One difference that I'd like to note between this and an invariant
section is that this non-removable part is in the comments, and does not
affect, in any way, the binary output (opaque copy, in GFDL terms),
whereas an invariant section in documentation licensed under the GFDL
must be part of the opaque copy.

Whether this difference is significant or not can still be argued.
