You must admit that such behavior strong differentiate from others languages for the rule of one-line comment. Solid bulk of languages

C++, Bash, C#, Haskell, Lisp, TeX etc. consider that one-line comment can begin in any place of a line excepting strings (a text between ").

I guess major portion of PL/SQL programmers have first language Basic, Pascal or C.

My resume is this feature tends to errors. But I don't see any causes that PS/Sql's syntaxes must differentiate from the mainstream languages.
