I was normalising the priority field so that I could use it to prioritise
work; for example, non-editorial bugs that affect implementors are more
important than non-editorial bugs that affect authors, which are
themselves more important than any kind of editorial bug. When I get
requests to prioritise non-editorial bugs I can use the priority field to
keep track of these requests. In general all bugs should be "normal P3" 
unless I've received a request to prioritise something.
