I don't think it would help. There is (was) the tag "Doc" (or similar)
in Bugzilla which already marked the bug as something related to
documentation. Somebody who is concerned and ignored that would also
ignore a separate section and vice versa.
 I like a more general approach involving the users and packagers likewise:
 - see a lack of or bad description in the "Individual package
selection and/or rpmdrake
 - report it as a bug, giving the necessary explanation (in an ideal
world offer a good description yourself)
 - triage team dedicates the bug to either the packager or the
developper who inserts the description in the installer.

Anybody who complains about missing descriptions is pointed to this
way by others. So, as time goes by we can improve the status without
putting too much work on one specific desk all at once.
