Obviously if the short description is too long, something needs to go -
and in that case, certainly not mentioning the toolkit is reasonable.
However, in this particular case ("gtk/gnome client for masqdialer
server", but really "gnome client for masqdialer" since the "gtk" is
assumed when talking about GNOME) is 35 characters long.

If you think 35 characters is too long, feel free to start filing
thousands and thousands of bugs on all the other packages, suggesting
that they remove little bits and pieces.
