Of course other packages do this, but it doesn't mean it is the right
thing to do ;)

We have a really powerful tool, debtags, which can be used to describe
various aspects of a package, from the programming language used to
implement it, to the kind of files it is able to handle.

Putting any of the information which could be effectively described using
tags in the short or long description is completely redundant, and as such
should be avoided.
