GDAL is a data provider for QGIS and for example Even wrote in an issue 
concerning the WCS driver(*) that "... the lack of _DESC will prevent 
for example clients like QGIS to be able to use the subdatasets."

I have not look deeply into how the GDAL data provider works in QGIS,

It would be good to join the efforts somehow since it was quite a pain 
to support different WCS servers.
