Right now, you just finished slaying a general of an elf army named Yaven and was given his +1 Longsword. Yay! Looking to mark down the sword to remember this battle, your inventory and select Customize. For text edit option for the Longsword you currently have Name and Notes. If you as a player wanted to keep tabs of where you got the item, or a brief description of the blade that the DM gave, you could put it under Notes. However after saving changes and going back to your character sheet, you now see in the Actions tab:
"General Yaven +1 Longsword Martial, Versatile, Ornate Platinum Longsword with a blood red jewel in the pommel. This blade belonged to General Yaven of the 6th battalion from the Yaga clan. Claimed after the decisive victory over Durn Hall."
It's a bit clutter sum, but it's isn't life shattering. You continue on. The campaign continues, battles are won, loot is looted. Before long, you are scrolling far though walls of text in your inventory. The current solution to this is either keep notes on a completely separate document to be deleted, lost, forgotten. Or to go through the hurdles of creating a Homebrew Item with no mechanical changes to a current magic item, just to write down some flavor text. My feature request is to add another text option under Notes that would overwrite/tact onto (Check box?) the current Description.
