I don't think we need more choices: minor, normal and major would be enough
for my purposes. I read "major" as having elevated importance though, so I
think it just comes down to terminology. I just don't think the default
should imply that a decision has been made about the importance of the
ticket relative to other tickets, and having a default of "major" or
"minor" implies that (to me).

Another approach could be:
 * Rename "major" to "normal"
 * Rename "critical" to "major"

So then we'd have trivial, minor, normal, major and blocker. I'd prefer
this approach to adding another priority.
