If at least empty lines (i.e character sequences like \n\n)
would be recognized as separators which result at least
a line break, it would probably look better.

I think it used to work that way in the past. At least, it was possible
to pre-format the texts in the PDB somehow and it got properly exported
from the PDB suitable for yast and (in the very past) for the package
list on the Web.

For current products the PDB is no longer used at all
so that any kind of special pre-format is no longer available.

Therefore YaST (or whatever tool which shows RPM description texts)
must be prepared to display plain text descriptions correctly.
