For using it in a page for samples list - yes, but generally, a
'description' element can be used also with sitemap authoring tools to
provide some descriptive information to the user. And as a side effect it
can be used in our case, until we invent something more appropriate.

For simple samples (e.g. 'hello world', 'svg') this file can be the
front-page, and then it's worth it. But the samples with their own layout
and styles would like to have their own front-page (i18n, flow). 

So, I'd like to use a description from the sitemap for the page with the
samples list and samples should provide a default matcher displaying the
desired front-page. 

If you explain what else can be added to the sample.xml document except a
short description then I'll change my opinion.
