FYI: I hunted down a recent one:

and there are 2 uses of ${DESCRIPTION-AND-SCOPE}.  The first in the 
first block of text [*] is:

"the Bean Validation Specification and its implementation as Apache 

and the second is:

"creating an implementation compliant with JSR-303
and a library of pre-developed validators and extensions


[*] Well, the first block of text is a sentence and paragraph but after 
that *the* sentence is quite long!
