Enabling `hs-minor-mode' tests if `comment-start' and `comment-end' are
bound to something non-nil and fails otherwise.  This happens even
before `hs-special-modes-alist' is handled.  IMHO this doesn't make much
sense.  FWIW, your minor-mode must bind `comment-start' and

If your mode doesn't have comments at all, you can bind these to a
regexp that always fails matching - like "\\=[^[:ascii:][:nonascii:]]".

Does that help?
