When I open the KDE launcher, I typically see

name (description)

format for mostly all entries. Description is useful when you want to know 
what is xmms, while name is useful when you want to know _which_ audio player 
utility is going to be started when you click on the item. The actual format 
and behavior can be configured somewhere within the launcher settings, and I 
see that approx. 90% menu items have good, informative descriptions.

For example, in the Utilities menu there is a

KAlarm (Personal Alarm Scheduler)

entry. So I would think that the problem is not why KDE devs do not provide 
descriptions, but rather why Gnome devs do not display them properly.

I guess you should file a bug against Gnome launcher (or whatever they call 
it).

HTH, :-)
