Is it possible to add a comment to such a folder, independent of any images?

Unfortunately not. The only thing you can do is give the folder a color with a certain meaning.
Should this point be a feature request to Adobe?

Gets my vote too
Probably a huge coincidence, but someone just posted a plug-in to add notes to folders. I have NOT yet had a chance to try out this plug-in, since I'm currently travelling.

Thanks Phil, I tried it on my Windows 10 system (Lighroom 8.4.1 and it seems to work! (First installed Typora) I wil give it a try on my Macbook (Lightroom 9) one of these days too. First observation: it does not only work on folders and collections but also on smart collections.
Here is my configuration on Windows:

Roelof,

I installed this plug-in and set it up for Microsoft Word (2013) and got an error message when I tried to view or edit a file, which I will report back to the plug-in author. I'll try to set it up using the Typora editor.
