Looking at this list:
 - #468423 and #468425 got minor, rationale was given.
 - #404339 is normal, but the same rationale would apply.
 - #285040 still applies, but the Policy (now 5.6.12) still says should.
 - #518400 probably will go away, but I'd say that providing an illegal
   package name might not do as much harm as a buggy version number, so
   it probably wouldn't deserver more than important.

Those tools should raise appropriate errors, not just “break”.

Look at the actual bugreports?

(Arguing normal vs. important looks like time loss to me, but YMMV.)
