Not a single reason for that
Except of course for the ones that have been pointed out. And for the reasons you yourself brought up in favor of version(none). Not a single reason aside from all of those.

If they can't be used in edge cases is not a reason to never use them.

* properly nested `/+ +/` indeed don't cause issues
Disproved two times in this thread. Anyway nothing properly done causes issues.

Being that the issues with /* */ are a superset of the issues with /+ +/, they clearly cause fewer issues than /* */.

The OP's example shows that nested comments ignore programmer's intent. In the end they work when opening and closing sequences are gotten right, not when programmer intends them to nest. The difference is so infinitesimal it's difficult to formulate it, but difference in complexity is evident.
