WRX Import does not import category description

When exporting a wordpress blog, category descriptions are stored in the resulting XML file. However, upon import, they are not re-imported. As such a full-circle export-import is not possible.
While the default theme does not use category descriptions, other themes do use it and this bug does limit the usefulness of the import feature. This has been reported by others in the support forums in the past (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/175488 and http://wordpress.org/support/topic/150223).
This is also a problem when migrating from another blog system or CMS (in my case) via WXR files.
Create a category with a description in wordpress
Export to WRX file
Import WRX file into empty blog.
Result: Category will be imported, but category description will be missing.
