length of a package extended description

Some texlive-* packages (and perhaps others) have a huge extended
description, e.g. more than 1900 lines for texlive-latex-extra!

Shouldn't the length be limited by the Debian policy?

Otherwise shouldn't utilities (such as "dpkg -s") provide a
configurable way to limit the output of the "Description:" field?
