The numbers indicate priority,

• the further from 0 the more we care about it
• positive numbers are more relevant to business and requirements gathering
• negative numbers are more relevant to development

Everything has an ASCII friendly character associated with it. This makes reporting in the terminal easier.

Colors are meant to be meaningful to a large portion of developers. Currently this is North American biased, but so is the group I work with, and software developement in general.

Symbols are meant to be reasonably meaningful, though some amount of learning is expected from the report readers. The decision of constraining to ASCII characters maximizes the number of terminals this can be reported on.
