There's a "description" property which is pretty much what you're asking 
for, it can be attached to most elements (classes, methods, members, 
etc) and is intended to be used for output to code comments and to code 
documentation tools.

With regards to syntactic sugar, the current XOD format is intended to 
be very low level data structure dump.  What I would like to do is use 
XSLT or a macro language to define translations from a friendlier syntax 
(which can include all sort of helpful tags) to a low level 
representation such as XOD.

Ask and ye shall receive.  Take a look at voss5/src/app/helloworld.
