I personally use urgency=medium for non-security-related RC bugs.

When I set the urgency to anything other than "low", I also mention why
as one of the first entries in the Debian changelog.  That way people
can see my reasoning and tell me if they disagree.  No one's bothered to
do so in years, so they like either don't care, or my usage of "medium"
and "high"[1] is not considered improper.

[1] I've never had cause to use "emergency".
