Yep, but that's more an indication on how much work remains to be done on wine than it is an incorrect severity level.
If Photoshop(the eternal example) should stop working on windows due to a regression, I am sure the users would consider it critical when they report it to Microsoft.
But as the wine project progresses, severity levels will hopefully drop so that there will be more nuances.
I just think there is something severely when registering a bug that results in unworkable applications is considered a "normal" or even "minor" bug.
To me, that's sending the wrong signals about the ambition of the project.
Unless the "not yet suitable for general use" from the faq is everywhere with blinking warning signs.
