[SciPy-Dev] Clarification: is the Extended Summary section optional?

The docstring Standard seems to be careful to note which sections are
considered optional, and the "Extended Summary" is *not* on that list.
However, I'm encountering many SciPy docstrings in the Wiki lacking this
section and yet marked as "Needs review": should I ignore this deficiency
and add a ticket to clarify the Standard, or should such docstrings be moved
back to "Being written"?

Mathematician: noun, someone who disavows certainty when their uncertainty
set is non-empty, even if that set has measure zero.

Hope: noun, that delusive spirit which escaped Pandora's jar and, with her
lies, prevents mankind from committing a general suicide.  (As interpreted
by Robert Graves)
