Adding notes to the configuration items

When I design and implement software systems I generally add documentation notes directly to the code (e.g., using javadocs).

I would be delighted to see an option to add notes to the router configurations, both to remind myself of my thinking and (even more importantly) to present any and all who will inherit my network at some point with the rationale for the configuration decisions made.

As it is I have to maintain separate documents, to be updated whenever I perform even trivial modifications. Duplicating documentation is known to result in divergence…
