This is a sensible suggestion but, since you did not Cc: it to me as I
requested in my first post, it came too late.  The package is already
uploaded with the name libparse-recdescent-perl-doc-nonfree.  It's too
bad, because I would had 3rd place in the longest-package-name contest in
Debian, only behind libbusiness-onlinepayment-bankofamerica-perl and 

Perhaps I can find a way to upload
