Yes, this is precisely my concern. If our experience with Trac is any
guide it seems likely that reporters will indeed set issues priorities
and it's not clear that this is something that we want to discourage.

For this reason I haven't yet removed the "needs triage" label and won't
do so until we get a sense for how frequently reporters set the priority
