Description:
"Index Comment" don't have an effect on "SQL Statement(s)" (and
not apply).

MySQL version: 5.0.45-community-nt
(the old version may be the cause)

Can indexes have comment option in MySQL at all? 

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/create-table.html
.. does not list such option. Only

index_type:
    USING {BTREE | HASH}

index_option:
    KEY_BLOCK_SIZE [=] value
  | index_type
  | WITH PARSER parser_name

But it's listed here http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.5/en/create-table.html
It would be nice to disable this field for older versions of MySQL.

You are right.  I was not aware.  But I think index-level comments are buggy too, what I reported here: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=57852

Indeed, MySQL Workbench should disable this field when connected to server that does not support comments for indexes.

In fact there's more wrong with that, as I reported here: http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=74263
