It depends if you mean removed from testing (not included in the release) or
removed from unstable (not to come back in the foreseen future). For the first
kind an RC bug with a title that clearly states that the package is not fit
for release will do. For the second kind of removal...

... I think it would be best to file a seperate removal bug against
ftp.debian.org explaining why the package should be removed, what replacement
packages exist etc.

The severity of a removal request is ignored AFAIK...
