Right - this is why I'm saying keep the set of things restricted.
A big paragraph/page is not unreasonable provided you know how many you
plan to scale to, but don't add too much data there and let people link
out to OCS for 'more info'.
So - a name + summary + descrip + lang-descrip + icon?
then link out for 'extended info' which could include screenshots, etc.
Also by not including any type of markup you can conserve space in the
metadata that's not strictly content.
