 Can anyone direct me to *any* discussion of the traditional style used by
 commentators ( i.e., the literary style employed by the writers of
 bhaashya, Tiikaa, TippaNii etc.). >>

If you are interested in a discussion of the commentatorial prose style in
Tamil, Kamil Zvelebil has a major chapter on it in The Smile of Murugan.
