Here's my take on it :)

Small change. Fix before release if minimal code is affected

New feature request.

Nuisance bug. Fix whenever convenient.

Documentation?

An odd one indeed :) Small change. Not really a bug. Fix when convenient.

> Major

Signiciant bug. Fix before release unless risk of fixing is greater than risk of bug.

> Crash

Self explanatory :) Crash, but not necessarily a show stopper.

> Block

Catastrophic bug. Stops all operation of software; could include loss of data. Software can't
ship in this state.

2 cents,
