What's the summary?
The sign above the aisle that says "headache medicine"? Or perhaps the sign on the shelf itself?

Or, it could be the smaller title below the brand name on the bottle that says "headache and pain relief". Generally the brand name is the most prominent title, which would suggest that the Package Name should be larger/more prominent in PackageKit than the Summary.


I'd argue that's what Groups are for.  In jef's analogy, it's the Aisle
which your "sign above the aisle" reflects.

Those are different though. An aisle, and likewise a group, contains a relatively broad group of semi-related products. A more accurate way to say it would be it is /one particular entry/ in the sign above the aisle.
