There are two difficulties here:
1) What is "critical" to me may seem totally unimportant to you.
2) I might just make everything "critical" to make someone look at it

(I have lots of developers at work who believe in the latter approach).

The approach we used at work was to avoid the "critical/high/medium/low"
categories and categorise based on impact instead - which removed much
of the subjectivity.
