One thing that's worth mentioning is that I've implemented this so that the warnings will be completely skipped at critical priority.

One thing I'd like to do here is mention the real first fallback language (for languages that have a list of fallbacks). Problem there is that we only have the translation of the language name in that language, and not in the selected language. So we either need to accept that, or maybe add a file with the few needed translations (which would need to be kept up-to-date).

For the more severe warnings it is false. I'm glad that you are OK with the proposed templates. It was quite hard to find texts that adequately described the severity levels without being too verbose.
