Thank you for the references. I will read them shortly.
For now, I got away with a macro-generating macro:

(define-syntax (def-with-comment stx)
   (syntax-case stx ()
     ((_ (name comment . params) . body)
            (hash-set! comments (syntax->datum #'name) (syntax->datum 
          (define (name . params) . body)))))
