I was going to jump at your throat for suggesting a free-text comment 
attribute... But using it only as a complement to values from an 
appropriately designed list would make sense. Then remains the issue of 
what that list of values should be - and doesn't that bring us back to 
square one ?

Also, if I remember correctly, the traffic_issue:severity=block 
duplicates the meaning of some existing tagging which work just fine as is.
