Tim Jenness: would you be willing to review this small change to obs_base, obs_decam, and obs_subaru? I only added doc fields for filters that I thought needed some description and that I could find notes online about.
I think it would be useful to have similar information in obs_lsst's filters.py, possibly with links to the relevant design docs. I don't expect this doc field to be a catch-all, but having a sentence or two can help with questions like "Do I need to worry about what ENG-R1 is?"
