How to? Delete descriptions

How do you delete descriptions stored in NTFS using the DESCRIBE command?

I've tried
describe filename /d""

The only mention to deleting descriptions in the help file is in the "Purpose" at the beginning of the DESCRIBE docs
Take Command Help v.14.0 said:
Purpose: Create, modify, or delete file and subdirectory descriptions
and then once again further down where it talks about removing the hidden attribute of the descript.ion file.
I think that might qualify as a bug. But until Rex gets a chance to look at it, you can try:

delete filename:%@char[5]summaryinformation

Be warned, this will blow away all summary information, not just the description!
