Hi Eric -

Unfortunately there isn't a 'traces' equivalent for 'define-judgment-form' right now.  However, as someone who is working on related things in Redex I have had similar thoughts and think it's a great idea, so hopefully we will add it at some point in the future.  And if you have any further ideas about what you would want something like this to look like please send them my way.
