Especially since some of the texty type things like feats can have more than just a description and a benefit (take Pathfinder's often having "normal" entries as well, for comparison.

I've noticed that some of the people who've done the real work on Ultimate Combat's feats have added in a "[Normal]" tag in the BENEFIT line. I think this is great! They should all have this. Well, to keep with the data style, it would seem more fitting to be a NORMAL:desc tag.
I personally want as much information as possible. I want to display the simple description, as well as the benefit, and any other information like comparatives to SOP. The more information I have on my character sheet, the less I have to thumb through a book in the middle of combat and halt the game while I find a rule.
So, how difficult would it be, really, to provide the option to display both? I know that simple ideas often mean lots of work.
