Bug#446712: debian-policy: document comments in debian/control

Package: debian-policy
Severity: wishlist

dpkg has supported comments (ignoring lines starting with #) in
debian/control since 1.10.11.  We should at least consider documenting
them.  (Encountered while processing lintian's bug backlog.)
