[MonoDevelop] Comments on the comment template

I found the xml comment template to be a little bit too verbose, so I
submitted the following bug.

https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=606222 [1] 

I got two
replies, one agrees with me. 

The other does not agree and redirected me
here, assuming I found the right list. 

The question in short is: Why is
the comment template for methods so verbose: 

/// A 

I would
consider the "A " to be repetitive since that information is already
available in the code. Tools such as intellisense do already include that
information and I assume others does as well. 

Does anyone have any ideas
on this? 

How can this be changed, there seem to be some previous design
decision, but where can I find it?
