Russ has suggested the new tag becoming wishlist and once a tag is
wishlist, it won't show up for most people - only with lintian -I. 

" ... I've changed the severity to wishlist instead,"

 The default settings are equivalent to -L ">=important"

so "Severity: wishlist" won't appear unless you override those defaults
with -I or other options.
