If you use Google's Task List, you could add the message as a Task and add notes to that. "Add to Tasks" is under the "More" menu. It's then added to your tasks, with a convenient link to open the original email message. Then you can edit the task and add information to the "Notes" field.
I would just forward the message to myself, adding whatever notes I wanted in the forwarded message.
