Hi Bob,
Thanks for the info.  I've created an issue for diagram descriptions: http://argouml.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=6360

I looked into GEF and it seems that Diagrams have comments which could be used, but there's no support in ArgoDiagram for it.

Regards,

Mark

There is no feature to hide stereotypes.

Have you created an issue to add a diagram description to the PGML via
the diagram property panel?
