Triggering Animation with comments.

Ok, so I do a lot of overlays for pre-recorded events and I was wondering if it was possible to trigger animations by using comments. Not in the Dan Ebbert way (http://www.motionscript.com/design-guide/marker-sync.html, which I've used and love) but rather in a way that takes place within the same sequence using established values.
Basically is there any way in AE to say, "Look at marker comment x. When comment x = Move45, take the curent rotation value of layer y and add 45 to it over the next 20 frames."
Is that even possible and what would be the best way of telling AE this?
