That would be an inappropriate place to do so, since those are generic
instructions for all the packages using Some of them do
use those higher severities. The appropriate place would be

But personally I do not think it is worth bothering.

IMO covers it

    If a report is of a particularly serious bug, or is merely a feature
    request that, you can set the severity level of the bug as you
    report it. This is not required, however, and the developers will
    assign an appropriate severity level to your report if you do not.

AFAIK Emacs has made no deliberate decision to avoid the higher
severities, it is just they very rarely seem applicable/needed.
