Oh god no. Please no. Inflating bug severeties just makes it harder to
do releases; if there's a problem with normal bugs being ignored (and,
IMO, there is), it needs to be addressed directly, not worked around by
filing everything as important or higher.

Hrm. At least tell me that I'm misreading this, and what you meant to say
was `` "higher quality" than "average" '' or something.
