Please, NO! This whole how many questions to ask thing
is complex enough. I do not want to answer questions like:
"But I do not want to install a server, why should I say
'server'? I only want that my network connection works."
What about just
'fast' 'custom' 'expert' for high medium and low.
(perhaps having 'veryfast' for critical, too)
(expert is still a bad word, as it also bear the confusion for a newbie
to think that he should not use it, though it might be the best thing
to use in strange circumstances. Perhaps he will be already used to it
due to the common misuse of the term..)
