During Custom Setup, some Feature Descriptions are not helpful.

For example the option XSLT Sample Filters has a feature description of "XSLT Sample Filters". It would be better to say what an XSLT sample filter is used for.

Such is also the case for OpenGL slide transitions and the Extension subfeatures.

please list all items that need a better description and propose what you would like to write instead of it.

The options that most need proper descriptions are:

•XSLT Sample Filters
•Extensions > MediaWiki Publisher
•Extensions > Solver for Nonlinear Programming
•Extensions > Script provider for JavaScript
•Extensions > Script provider for BeanShell

Currently in the _descriptions_ of these features are simply the _names_ of these features, repeated, and it is not clear to end-users what those features actually do.
