I don't see the need for "package", and "commentchar" -- after all, I
think we would end up only constructing those "markers" from them.

I'm all for "splitting information", but I don't think it's much
useful in this case.  To me, it's more confusing actually.

How about a simple:

<textdump mode="insert">

	<header># Begin of insertion qt</header>
	<footer># End of insertion qt</footer>
