On second thought, I would like to note that we are commonly using the word
"mass filing" in the sense that it's done based on automatically generated,
never proofread data. That belongs in the "assume lowest severity" category,
but one can also do a mass filing of properly proofread bug reports. It is a
pity that people don't do the latter more often.
