That should give you additional "security in integrity",

Yes, every line starting with a # is considered a comment (like
in shell scripts). In case of the default comment line, the
second # is just "pass number" written as "Pass#". Comment line
and empty lines can appear in /etc/fstab as desired. You can use
them to "structure" your fstab file as soon as it gets "too
many" entries (which may be possible when you're utilizing NFS
a lot).
