>From the BTS reference:

        is a severe violation of Debian policy (roughly, it violates a
        "must" or "required" directive), or, in the package maintainer's
        opinion, makes the package unsuitable for release.
Obviously a "should" it is not a "must" nor a "required".
Also this bug doesn't make the package unsuitable for release.
Therefor I'm lowering the severity to normal.
Thanks for reporting this bug, we'll try to fix it as soon as we can.
