"Importance" has 3 fields: Priority, Severity and Votes. Severity is
inherent to the issue. Votes is the "priority" defined by the user, and
Priority should be defined by the developers[1].

It's true that everybody can change the Priority, but if it's possible
to put some message there (without having to click on the help), I think
people might leave it alone (Wikis do work, right?). Also, as
I suggested in the devel list[2], it might help to rename the priorities
to something more readable, like:
P1 -> Immediate (*)
P2 -> Next release
P3 -> Eventually
P4 -> Future
P5 -> Informational
