Because by default, Description is supposed to be a few sentences 
describing a content item.  It should be free from markup.  The content 
body should be markup specific.  For whatever reason, 'Description' was 
used for the main body of software packages, and as such has none of 
the CMF's renderers behind it.  This is not a one line fix.  And nor 
should it default to Structured Text automatically, because then all of 
the people who used HTML end up in a bind.

It should be fixed, but it will take some work.
