True. In fact, it could be something like that :

Is your report a wish ? [yes/NO]
If yes, go directly to explanation
Else do you want to set a severity ? [yes/NO]
  If yes Which severity do you want ? [normal]
  Else use severity normal by default

Or something along those lines (my english can be better rephrased).
