Analyze in Excel - Can you view Explicit DAX Measure Description Details?

Hello, 

 

Is it possible to view description details of methodology for DAX Measures within Analyze in Excel Pivot Table interface option?

 

I was assuming if you input a description here in the model, you would be able to hover over measure in excel, but it does not seem to be the case.

No Tooltip with description pop up with Analyze in Excel.

The only other alternative I can think of, which will be a process from an enterprise perspective, is to allow wide spread downloading of 3rd party extension tool Model Documenter, and publish the report of the dataset in same workspace so end users could see point-in-time documentation of the model's explicit dax formulas. 

 

Any ideas?
