Incorrect. The original submitter filed the bug as Important. It wasn't
donwgraded prior to your upgrade.

The mere presence of the open bug report is sufficient to see if other
people have a similar problem. The only reason to escalate the issue to
debian-devel is because you're trying to overrule the maintainers.

Google already knows about this bug, whatever the severity setting.

It is not only RC bugs which show up on searches.

"Visiblity" is no reason for severity ping-pong or escalation to -devel.

Talk to the maintainers without messing with bug severity, you may
learn something.
