We wouldn't mark everything as P1 -- we'd use the whole range of 
priorities. The same problem could exist with the severity field.

The problem with the severity field is that it already has semantics 
which might conflict with how we want to prioritize things. Some 
"enhancements" might be on the short list, for example. I think in 
practice we'd find it confusing.

"Status whiteboard" is another option, which gives us more flexibility 
in defining semantics. imo the advantage of using the priorities is that 
it is clear that they are marking, um, priorities.
