Hmm. I only have one case in recent memory of generated code where I wrote the generator.

I agree that comments are not terribly useful, as long as you're always using the generator to update the generated code. In the past, I've had the generator include the original text as a comment in the generated stuff as a debugging aid for the generator itself.

Constants depend upon the purpose of the generator and the generated code. In some cases it's simpler to have the compiler compute constant values at compile time than it is to have the generator compute them.

I've not had [what I consider] a reasonable use for goto label in the last 20 years or so. That said, I do use break or continue fairly regularly.
