The goal is to be able to contain anything within a long string or
comment. In what you propose, how could "]]]" be included, for example?
To you your example, in 5.1, you can include "]****]" in a comment by
using a different number of asteriks:
Furthermore, simply allowing an arbitrary number of brackets
("[[[[...]]]]" , "[[[[[...]]]]]", etc.) does not solve the problem
because, as Roberto said, you cannot quote something that itself starts
and ends with a bracket.
