There's no central definition; different projects may define how they
use the importance field in different ways, although they're intended to
be simple enough that in most cases it should be fairly obvious.  Here
are two sample policies for projects using Launchpad:

  Ubuntu: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/Importance
  Launchpad itself: https://dev.launchpad.net/BugTriage#Importance
