There are many 3rd party scripts and solutions for maintaining the content of INI files, most of which base themselves on there being at least one [sectionnamegoeshere] element in the INI file. I would like to see Notes and Domino ignore the presence of such lines in the file when its parsed so we can add them and make central maintainance of the ini files available with other tools than policies as well.

I don't like the idea of many tools and users having acces to my servers notes.ini file.
Is there a reason why such a tool can't use it's own .ini or a profile document to store specific data ?

There are already now the possibility to add remarks in an INI-file that is ignored by the client and server; Just add a semikolon as a first character on the line and that line will be ignored during read.

Therefore, the need of [Section] ignore is not necessary - You could as simply add
and the line will be ignored...
So, No - You're not getting my vote.
