Come up with better message for SpecialAvailableBadges
Open, LowPublic

Description

Right now, a badge line in Special:AvailableBadges is like this: "Badge (Q3), A fancy badge" It was separated by dash but there is not i18n message for those. There have been some suggestions, for example, using definition list. Each has pros and cons IMO

We should come up with a localizable text that conveys the message properly

Note that the same solution should be reused for all special pages and messages that combine a label (being a link or not, with the ID in brackets or not) with a description. By saying this I'm mostly talking about a consistent user experience. We can actually reuse a message in different parts of our code base to achieve this goal, but this does have implications we might want to avoid.
