Might be easier just to post process the data to spot these in the
application as the output is being serialised. After all it's only an
"&lt;!--#" as the introducer of the command and "--&gt;" as the tail of
that command. Since the replacements ("<!--#" and "--&gt;")  are both
shorter, it should be relatively trivial to just replace these as you're
writing the output.

That would avoid disabling any output escaping which, as you say, is
rather ugly.
