#31540: Dropdown pages Customizer description option
 Reporter:  _smartik_    |       Owner:
     Type:  enhancement  |      Status:  new
 Priority:  normal       |   Milestone:  Future Release
Component:  Customize    |     Version:  4.1.1
 Severity:  normal       |  Resolution:
 Keywords:  has-patch    |     Focuses:  ui
Changes (by afercia):

 * focuses:  ui, accessibility => ui


 While I agree that for consistency also the `dropdown-pages` control
 should have a description, I'm going to remove the accessibility focus.
 This control does have a label and this is the most important thing from
 an accessibility point of view. Feel free to add the keyword again if I'm
 missing something.

 The description is currently used to "expand" the label text. I'm not sure
 having this expanded text (wich may be very long) ''inside'' the label
 element is a good thing for semantics. See screenshot below. Labels should
 be very short. Expanded descriptions should be ''after'' the form element.
 By the way this is out of this ticket scope and affects all the controls.
 WIll report in a separate ticket.
