I don't understand what you mean by 'regenerate texi->plain-text'.

IIUC there is no need to use 'texi->plain-text' here.  Instead you can
replace 'package-description' with 'package-description-string' in the
body of 'package->recutils'.  Or did I miss anything?

Also I think the same replacement should be done in (guix scripts lint)
and (guix scripts package).

The rest looks absolutely fine for me.
