I think that at least one attempt to contact the person 
is fair, we might use a shorter time period (one week?) 
and then directly change it to resolved.

Very true.

True, all developer have access to the bug-tracker.
If a single developer adds or substract 5 points to a value
the dialoge about the priority might start.

I believe that a resonable estimating of importance by any 
developer will be better than no estimation.
