Not to defend modifying describe-variable right now, but this:

Yes. Here is a doc string I have, for instance.

 "**Completions* window is removed if fewer chars than this are input."

is basically incorrect, in the sense that

 (defvar my-var nil "*Completions* window blah blah.")

is wrong; it makes my-var a user variable, when it isn't intended to.
Seems like a docstring payload (taking out the possible initial "*")
should not start with an asterisk...
