Description

There are many cases where the term description is used for more than just a simple one-line description of what a term is. I have several clients for whom the term description can be hundreds or words long.

Since there is no filter on the term description shown in the admin UI for manual adjustment, nor is there code to shorten it automatically, the entire term description is put into the description cell of the term table.

When the description is long, we get this:

This is something that can easily be handled. Given that automatically trimming the term description is probably not what users expect, I suggest adding a filter here https://github.com/WordPress/WordPress/blob/master/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-terms-list-table.php#L536 to allow a user/developer to limit the term description if needed.
