Unfortunately that isn't going to be something you can enforce with the standard setting of a required field in the entities. You will have to do some coding on the back end to see if you can capture the action.
I haven't tried to implement something of this sort, and it almost seems it would be easier to make it a people-process and have someone audit the folders and teach those who forget what it is that needs to be done than try to enforce it with code, but there are two ways I can see you implementing this:
1) On the creation of the test set folder, you can capture the action call to create it, and force the user to enter the information before truely allowing it to be saved or....
2) When a test set is added, you can then work back to the parent folder and ensure there is information in the description field, if not, then you can prevent the adding of the test set.
both would take a lot of doing (in other words - not an easy task).
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results
