Madison May added the comment:

It's obviously low priority, just thought I would mention it.  I found it a bit odd that "README" is used, though, since that means users will likely have to select the program they want to use to open the file (in Windows, at least).  

It might also be nice to follow the standard distutils idiom. From Éric Araujo on issue11913, 

"In packaging/distutils2, the recommended idiom looks like this (in setup.cfg):

    description-file = README.whatever"

In other words, README.txt would work nicely.
