Change GotoDeclaration tooltip text

I've created a couple of GotoDeclarationHandler classes. One of them simply opens a file matching its filename usage in another file, so when you ctrl-hover over the filename, the tooltip shows the absolute path of the file that would be navigated to. That's fine.

The second handler takes you to a YAML declaration in another file. When you click, it works exactly as desired. However, when you ctrl-hover over the target, the tooltip says something like YAML Key Value Impl "tag" [something.yml]. Is there way to customize this tooltip text? I tried changing the implementation of GotoDeclarationHandler.getActionText method, but that didn't seem to do anything.

This text comes from the YAML plugin. We can improve the current generic text to make it look better, but it's not possible to customize the text from a different plugin.
