Thank you for the gesture. I really appreciate that.

I did leave it as-is, so I'll leave it important. You're right, it's
just the *way* you went about it.

It's actually pretty simple - we were discussing it, and trying to
figure out exactly what's going on, usually we discuss such changes on
the bug before, or at least explain the comment to the bug (three words
in a control comment doesn't cut it, and may not be sent to everyone)

Something like:

"I've changed the severity to 'important' due to the potential issues
regarding accessibility with regards to people who are sight-impaired."

important issues may not be release-critical, but they're, well,
important. We should take care to discuss changes like this before we
make them.

Regardless, you're right. Let's leave it on important.
