I certainly didn't mean to imply that it's "not a big deal." The
context was that the PTL's ability to refuse work from individuals
doesn't magically make them work on priority tasks for that team
(and in my experience, more often simply causes them to go away); so
rejecting proffered non-priority effort doesn't translate to getting
priorities accomplished, though it can serve to reduce distractions
for the remaining team members who actually do want to focus on
those priorities, sure.
