The definition for <comment> has an issue when it follows a dot (".").
The definition includes 3 cases - simple comment, nested comment, and datum comment.
comment = ";" *non-line-ending line-ending
/ "#;" datum
The datum comment when following a dot "eats" the next datum and thus is improper.
I'd suggest to document this point or to correct the BNF definition with special handling for dot.
