Yes, you probably can find something better. My point was mostly
avoiding the repetition of short in long description and, if possible,
handle the short description as a kind of title, like we do elsewhere.

My point was mostly that we have no other place in the templates where
we refer to the behaviour of D-I regarding "priorities". I can propose
"It is possible to specify an alternative name in expert installs" or,
avoiding the passive forme, "Expert installs allow specifying an
alternative name for volumes groups".
