Certain parts of it are definitely good, and would also help preventing admins from just selecting a "too long" (or "too short") ban. It has been seen before with servers holding immature admins, that they are simply selecting Permanent, or longest possible, if it is someone that they somehow "hate".
If it should be integrated within SourceBans, I would say the best way to do it would be by rewriting SourceBans to have some kind of "dynamic" reason system, so you can add new reasons via the web panel.
And then within the specific reason, you can adjust and add multiple (and unlimited amount of) offences, so one offence may have just 3 levels, and another one could have 10, depending on how "serious" the specific offence is. To provide a more detailed example, it could be like:
1. 30 mins
2. 3 hours
3. 24 hours
4. 1 week
1. 1 hour
All which should be adjustable from within the SourceBans panel, both reason phrases and everything.
When an admin bans a player, (s)he will just select "Mic Spam" or "Spraying Nudes"; (s)he won't be presented for the amount of time that the ban should be, as that is handled automatically (and configured by the server/community "owner").
It is technically possible, but it will definitely require some time to do it.
