In the case of actual sentences, it's just convention to be consistent
with the packages whose descriptions are sentence fragments. It's a
bit arbitrary, granted.

It's just not the prerogative of the AUR contributor to make that
decision for the end-user who's going to be building the package. They
can very easily configure their own makepkg.conf to use uncompressed
tarballs if they so desire. Basically, a PKGBUILD shouldn't override
makepkg.conf unless there's a very good reason.
