        Description getDescription()
        The Description element is also reused throughout SE and SLD and gives an informative description of the “object” being defined. This information can be extracted and used for such purposes as creating informal searchable metadata in catalogue systems. More metadata fields may be added to this element in the future. The Name is not considered to be part of a description since a name has a functional use that is more than just descriptive.
