Having said the above I think this use of 'register location description'
is an example of a place in the Dwarf5 standard
where a link (to 2.6.1.1.3 ) would be a distinct improvement.

An improvement because it draws attention to that phrase
as having a very specific interpretation in the standard,
making the reader's job easier without adding visible text.
