I don't see the same behavior:
If I remove the <tooltip> field from ScoreComment then the command disappears from the Score menu (this is because, sadly, the tooltip field is (ab)used as the end-of-fields marker in the parsing, shocking I know, but true).
If I remove just the contents of the tooltip, the command returns but its tooltip is the default no-tooltip one.
There is redundancy here, essentially because tooltips originate in commands in the menu hierarchy and are only copied to the .commands file on saving the command set. What happens in other circumstances (e.g. re-writing the original command in the menu) is obscure - the original idea was that the tooltip should be editable by the user too.
If possible the .commands file should be treated as an internal datastructure, created by the save command set command.

The tool-tip in .command seems to be useless.

Check the tooltip with rightclick on a menu-item and choose "Help". This bug report also covers the keybindings-window where the tooltip/help is shown, too.

If the tag is removed completely from the .command file, no matter if from a built-in command or scheme command, the tooltip is still there.

If you change the tooltip:
a) For a built-in, nothing changes. The original help is shown.
b) For a scheme command you will get the error "Script not found", but the script works nevertheless AND you get the original tooltip, too.

It should be checked internally what the tooltip in .command is good for or if it can be just removed. From an outer point of view its just useless redundancy.
