Not really IMO. The very short description on the Teams page is enough to
understand what the team is about. This paragraph here is just a somewhat
more detailed reminder.

Sure. All roles should be teams anyway. :-)

Actually, I probably won't. Packaging teams are not my priority in this
exercise. The real problems that we have are more in the teams that handle
our infrastructure.

I think this is one of the most important section in those pages. 
It documents who is the best point of contact for a specific task
and let outsiders check if there's an opportunity for him.

Of course, for packaging teams it might be less important.
