You mean like a tag? Mkv has tags, incl. "SUMMARY".

If you create an xml file using a text editor (Notepad will suffice), that says
...
<Simple>
<Name>DESCRIPTION</Name>
<String>(whatever)</String>
</Simple>

<Simple>
<Name>COMMENT</Name>
<String>(whatever)</String>
</Simple>

and just specify it, on Mkvmerge GUI, when creating an mkv file, then a player like MPC shows (whatever) as "Description" below the video itself (Ctrl+3) while playing the resulted mkv file.
(Or if you mean subtitles, you can of course embed them as you like.)

Ok, simple Matroska Tags will be used.
For creating such Tags it is easier to use chapterEditor instead of a text editor.

Ok, I didn't know this before.
