Raising severity of Contains /usr/share/info/dir.gz if rebuilt on current sid"-bugs.

About 4 months ago I digged through Debian to find all packages which
would contain /usr/share/info/dir.gz if rebuilt (see #214769 for
details.) and submitted (iirc) about 30 bugs (about 20 still open)
with Severity important. Every single one of these bugs has patch.

I.e. any of these package has a RC bug if it is recompieled without
fixing this bug. Today an NMU happened (anubis) which did exactly
this. To stop this from happening again I want to raise the severity
to serious, but not without asking here, I have CCed release but want
discussion to happen on -devel.

NMUs aren't an insult, they're not an attack, and they're
not something to avoid or be ashamed of.
