Well, there are already some recommendations about writing package
descriptions in the Developer's Reference and some are also
implemented in lintian checks.

IIRC, the use of articles at the beginning of the package description
is already discouraged. Ditto for capital letters.

As you suggest, suing the package name in the package description is
also quite certainly a quite bad habit.

foo: foo is a program that does bar

is better replaced by:

foo: program that does bar
