What were you going to use then? Neither IMAP nor Maildir defines an
"important" flag unless you use some existing one for it (flagged?). So
I was thinking you'd add eg. "1 important" to .customflags and then use
'a' flag in maildir filename.

I don't think I'm going to change the Dovecot's behaviour of accepting
flags in new/ dir, but I was going to change COPY command to move files
directly into cur/ to avoid problems with other maildir clients.
I think with Sieve LDA it would work also by storing the mail directly
into cur/ directory.
