How about dropping the word "browsable" from there as well as the
requirement on the schema?  I like the complete free-form approach to
this tough.

But the downside is that it will be harder for indexes like PyPI to
include relvant links in their UI.  There will have to be some sort of
"agreed" string for a bug tracker for example.

How forceful are you going to be with the 32 character limit?  Reject
it or just print warnings?
