Ultimately, yes, but people can suggest what they think the severity
should be. Minor for a doc typo, wishlist for a feature (anything with
"feature request" etc in the subject is automatically classified as
wishlist), important for a crash, etc. They have been able to do this
for as long as we have been using debbugs. But I agree that it is not
hugely helpful by itself.
