I agree, Graham's proposal is devel-based only.
As a user I prefer Phil's suggestion.

An issue that clearly produces a bad (unexpected) output, whereas the
input was good should be given a "higher consideration".
The same for issues that give a poor output and that are likely to
happen in almost every score produced.
