Using \rem in context anywhere in a USFM file? #83

The \rem text tag is specified under Identification with the following description:

  • Used for adding brief comments by a translator, consultant, or support person.

Some interpret this as thereby implying that one should not use \rem in context anywhere else in a USFM file!

So for example, the following is strictly speaking an inappropriate place to have such:

\c 9

\s2 Падзякаваньне за вызваленьне
\rem Verse 1 is the descriptive title
\rem Acrostic title Самэх is missing. Some others may be misplaced?

\v 1  Кіроўцу хору. Пасьля сьмерці Лабэна. Псальма Давідава.

Observe that this use of \rem does not depart from how it's defined, only that its placement is not part of the Identification header lines before content that's to be rendered begins.

Please provide a clear statement in the documentation about this use of contextual comments using \rem . Thanks.

I still await a response.

Please clarify by updating #rem
