I think this is a good pattern, though I might have switched their
order myself, or only given the abbreviation if the two Descriptions
are identical.  I was thinking of a precedence like:
1) Description, if present
1.1) If Description is not unique, combine with one of the below
2) Abbreviation, otherwise
3) Name, otherwise

I know that Description is listed as a "Required" element, but if it
were absent, having fallbacks is a good idea.
