Major reason not to include a screen short if a simple verbal
description will do: Increases translation costs every time you have to
retake UI screenshots in the target languages.

My 2 cents.

Here's a tip though... rather than using descriptive passages, such as
"has a black background with white text"... if you really need to give
readers an idea of what they're dealing with, why not include a screen
shot instead?
