The thing is description is to *describe* the package in a few words.
It's not for categorization. Should tags be present, people will just
assign them. Just like they already provide url= or license=, although
there is no functional gain from having them. They just exist in
PKGBUILD wiki & template and most people happily use them. Just add
tags= to the template, and after a year most packages use it too.

Kind regards,
