You can get the effect you want by just post processing
the mhonarc output.  For example:

  cat mesg.eml | mhonarc -single | perl -n -e 'print unless /^<!--X/;'

I agree that -noprintxcomments should have prevented the printing of the
comment declarations, but something like the above can be done in the
meantime if you need a solution now vs later.

    It would be nice if the -noprintxcomments flag could
    disable all the <!--X...--> comments when used w/-single.

    Currently if I run:

( echo "From: me@me.com" ; echo "To: you@you.com" ; echo "Subject: test" ; echo "Date: Mon, 01 Aug 2005 17:08:31 -0700"; echo ; echo "Test" ) | mhonarc -noprintxcomments -single

    ..the result includes <!--X...--> comments.
