I'm confused as to why you don't like (a)...

The current tutorial files don't have a title at all, they start with
a chatty sentence saying "This is the super friendly Emacs tutorial!"

I think it would be quite nice to just add a real title before that,
and use that for the description string; it wouldn't have the
maintenance problems (or the "adding yet more reams of cruft to etc"
problem) of the other approaches.

E.g, change them to start something like:

                     Emacs Tutorial

    This is the super friendly Emacs Tutorial!
