This issue is impossible to fix, I am afraid. It is never good idea to use \text.. commands for larger chunks of text that contains paragraphs, tables, lists, etc. The \textsf inserts opening tag, but \begin{description} closes the current paragraph, which results in invalid XML structure. The same thing happens with the closing tag, which is inserted in another paragraph. \sffamily uses HTF fonts mechanism, which can respect paragraphs and styling is applied just to the text.

As suggested by William F.H., using
instead of "\textsf{}" works with oolatex.
AFAIK, those two are usage-equivalent (I don't know about the internals, though):

I'm happy with the workaround (so the severity can be lowered), but the bug stays...
