This is not what I asked for.  I said that, in novice mode, users should not
be presented with a list of severities *by name* to pick between because
they won't have read the documentation and won't know what the correct
severity is.

I think there are real reasons that novice users may still need to *file* RC
bugs, and in those cases they should be allowed to pick the severity based
on a text *description* of the severity level - just not by a severity name.
