So, while I think packaging guidelines are good to have, I don't think
everything needs to be codified there.  It just makes a reviewer's job
harder, and writing a guideline for this is going to be fairly tedious.

Just file bugs for packages you think are overly verbose.  Offer
alternate summaries in the bug, and a URL to your email for
rationale.
