Image editor doesn't display description field

Inserting an image into the editor gives you the ability to edit the description. However when editing an image the description field isn't displayed.

The title field is also missing.

Is this behaviour intended?

Yes, it's intended - when an image is inserted into content, it is effectively separated from its attachment and becomes a part of that post's content instead. The fields that remain do not get synced back to the attachment in the media library but rather only apply to that instance of image content, and so other fields that don't display in the content aren't present. It's a little bit of a mind-bend, but since images can be inserted from other sources, there is a separation there.
