The details aren't set in stone, but the gist of it is this:
By default a description should be worth 4 points.
For longer descriptions (at least half a page), some additional points will be awarded, corresponding to the additional length, up to a maximum of 4 bonus points.
The exact range that will get the extra points still needs some discussion, and perhaps we could even penalize very short descriptions by a point or two, if desired (since our standards specify more thorough descriptions should be written).
In any case, this will be an automated system based on word count (really, character count).
