The benefit of requiring a description on the page is that it is  
immediately obvious which links are valid, and which not. To allow an  
indirect reference requires following the reference. Doesn't stop the  
description including a link to more detailed information /  
architecture blog etc.

Sure, which is the description, as opposed to the justification/how-is- 
couch-used. I think it's also OK to make an accurate description be a  
requirement, rather than simply an issue of 'politeness'.

I wonder what 'nsfw' means if you work in porn? Religious sites? :)
