Saving description of Tool parameters without sharing the xml

I have created a Python Toolbox with multiple tools. Each of these tools takes multiple parameter inputs. Using the "Item Description" option from Arc Catalog, I have added multiple descriptions. This toolbox is further being shared with a user. Now I have the option of encrypting the python toolbox but not the XML files which are created in the directory containing the Python Toolbox, so I can share the toolbox but not the XML Files as the entire code has to be encrypted to ensure the user does not make any unwanted changes.

 

The issue this creates is that the description I have added are not shared as they are stored in the XML File. Is there any way I can store the descriptions directly in the Python Toolbox?
