I would even vote to put Seamonkey somewhere in the short package
description. IMO, the idea is to get iceape packages in result set if
you do

  apt-cache search seamonkey 

  iceape - The Iceape (Seamonkey) Internet suite - Meta package
  iceape-browser - The Iceape (aka Seamonkey) Internet browser

in this way users would easily recognize that if they are looking for
seamonkey, iceape is the package to go for.
