The new proposed description doesn't remove the abbreviations, so I
don't see any problem here.  It seems useful to me to include both
abbreviations and spelt-out versions, (a) as users might search for
either, and (b) it's good if descriptions are understandable enough for
users looking for something else to know when this is *not* the package
they wanted, so even if all target users know related jargon/an
abbreviation it's good to explain what it is.
