In fact, for the '500' it is because of this:

 Usage     : $hit_object->description( [integer] );
 Purpose   : Set/Get a description string for the hit.
             This is parsed out of the "Query=" line as everything after 
             the first chunk of non-whitespace text. Use $hit->name()
             to get the first chunk (the ID of the sequence).
 Example   : $description = $hit->description;
           : $desc_60char = $hit->description(60);
 Argument  : Integer (optional) indicating the desired length of the
           : description string to be returned.
 Returns   : String consisting of the hit's description or undef if not set.

But maybe it is just for blast and not fasta.
