Seems like a good idea to me.  I added the "Teradata" tag since that seems relevant.

Yes, let's get this done. Let's also advocate a Proc Three-Mode.

This should be a general SAS/ACCESS libname/dataset option. Column comments or similar are not unique to Teradata.

I suggest some value for the DBSASLABEL option which generally retrieves the column comment (if applicable) into the SAS label, and a new option, which could be called DBLABEL, which could be set to e.g. NAME (the SAS variable name is put into the column comment), LABEL (the SAS label is put into the column comment), or NONE (no column comment).
