+1, improving the CFP itself should be prio 1 (or 0). As Yuan Chen also mentioned above this is what many of us who had touch points with academia are used to and this is the very basis for being able to judge blindly at all. They also mentioned good practices for CFP that would help with increasing quality of submissions.

With the current character limits it is almost impossible to judge a talk based on this alone. Speakers are trying to get around this by spreading talk info throughout "abstract", "benefit to the community", and their "bio", which results in sub-optimal entries for the program. Here the abstract shown in the program could be separate from the actual talk submission, so it can be a real teaser for the talk.
