It sounds pretty obvious, but I'd suggest a "suck it & see approach".
When I export a table, add some comments (in the form "# ....") and import
the file as a Table, the additional comments are correctly imported and they
do not affect the overall structure; I can easily recover the data using
My advice is to add your comments but to stick to the same convention to
ease the task of post-processing. Test things on a small file.
