At the F2F today, Jack said that the Description component was not 
important for the RDF mapping.

I think the Description component is important because it acts as a 
container for top level components. It provides a context. A top level 
component might be a member of many Description components, e.g. if it 
gets imported in many contexts. The Description component itself models a 
component model instance in that it represents a set of related 
components.
