I know there is a good deal of discussion about reserving nicknames to keep people identified. This might pertain somewhat to that as well.

Or something to that effect.

Server admins could assign the description, with clients still able to edit their nick whenever they feel like it. Yes the description is already listed if you click on the person, but that is a bit more tedious than being able to instantly see everyones description by default. Perhaps it could be a virtual server setting checkbox to "prefix description to nickname"
