Recommended method for setting the severity level for services and hosts

I found the variables host.severity and service.severity but no information about how they are used. Should I use these variables for custom severity management? And what is the recommended way with the director.

Those are state attributes which cannot be modified by the user. The docs URL also contains a reference to the technical specification.
