Many thanks for your reply, Wolfgang.

I’m afraid that TeX is too tricky for me in that case (or I simply think
that it is misbehaving there).

I’m afraid this doesn’t work with my real document.

I need another approach. This sample reflects my problem:

  %~ \showframe\showgrid
    \dorecurse{41}{one line\par}

    \ \comment[location={rightmargin}]{comment}

Since layers are problematic for the task, I insert the comments right
after the text (which actually comes from \xmlflush{#1} [XML sources]).

I’m afraid that the paragraph before \comment comes from \xmlflush, so I
cannot avoid it.

This is unproblematic for most cases, but the sample above displays the
problem of adding a comment in a new paragraph. It might add a new page.

To avoid this issue: how could I prevent the pagebreak before \comment
and the addition of a pagebreak above?

If that were possible, I could add a \blank[-2*line] that would place
the comment right.

Many thanks for your help,
