Doesn't seem to use deb package descriptions?

Bug Description

Using current xenial, softwares like vlc, inkscape, dia, .... gives one line detailled descriptions. It seems like it's using the .desktop comment, is that by design? The .deb (debian/control) descriptions are quite more useful and translators put ton of work in ddtp translations, we should make sure that's not wasted.
