My intention was for it to be very similar to this MBF announcement
(apart from adding a few references to "this package" etc.), except
in cases where I can tell the dependency is likely to be unnecessary
(I already filed bugs for a few of those).

If you say so. I was going to use normal, like I did for the analogous
dbus-glib MBF; the practical difference between minor and normal doesn't
seem significant.

Given GTK 2's lack of feature development (for things like HiDPI) it
seems higher-severity than "a problem which doesn't affect the package's
usefulness", and it's certainly not "presumably trivial to fix" in
many cases.
