jani, you should probably always include the relevant wiki link and a

this should be re-forumlated so they actually know what it is about:
"unless the documentation team considers the UI change critical."
(they are basically a proxy for an actual UX team).

we also need an actual policy what to do about P1 bugs that require
string changes, because in this case "fix the P1" and "don't touch the
strings" are obviously incompatible.
