At the PTG there was feedback from at least one team that consumers of
the data in storyboard want a priority setting on each
story. Historically the response to that has been that different users
will have different priorities, so each of them using worklists is the
best way to support those differences of opinion.

I think we need to reconsider that position if it's going to block
adoption. I think Ben's case is an excellent second example of where
having a field to hold some sort of priority value would be useful.
