If we provide little guidance/examples of valid bug severities, I'm not
surprised when we get a subjective response from reporters.  I don't
blame reporters for this.  The task of removing the subjective nature
from the definition of bug severity is a worthwhile effort.  

There will always be incorrect use of these fields, which we will have
training/documentation materials to help reinforce proper use.
