Just looking in my image, there's a ton of classes using #description, and
it's pretty much always a string, which is what I'd expect, and the same
reason I want to use it as such.  Any time I see the word description, my
expectation is a string describing the object in question.  Even the
WAStoreItem from Seaside's demo store uses it, something that'd scream to be
used as a model in Magritte.
