No, this does not belong in policy.  If you have a problem with the
descriptions of packages, you're welcome to file wishlist or minor
bugs in any case.

Perhaps we could add something to the proposed style guide (or
whatever it's going to be called), but I really think that policy is
the wrong place for nitpicking of this sort.
