People also don't use the UTF8 chars in update descriptions or spec file
changelogs, and quite understandably, there's no bullet key on most
keyboards. Using a * is so 1980's.

I'm sorry but I think if you're going to suggest a specialized format for the description tag and/or try to change pkgs to comply with this format or file bugs about non-complying pkgs then your suggestion should go to the Fedora Packaging or Fesco for approval. A change to the existing
standard is going to need approval from more folks.

You may also consider approaching the opensuse and mandriva folks to make sure they are onboard, too.
