The information isn't random, it's explanatory.  It explains where the 
score for that specific index came from.  Having it at the end loses the 
context and I think loses a lot of the meaning as well.  I understand that 
it makes the final report very long, but I think that's the whole point of 
connecting it with the verbose flag and not making it print the 
explanation by default.

The index scores don't mean anything without some explanation of where 
they come from and how they're calculated.  You could put that information 
in the documentation, but that won't explain the score for a particular 

If that's not what you mean by "verbose", then I guess I'm not sure what 
the "verbose" flag should do.
