I was just going to suggest ":urgency" to get the idea more clearly
across when the message from Peter Saint-Andre ticked in :-)

(important things aren't always urgent.)

I was thinking of importance and that it may not be one-dimensional, but
couldn't say why I felt that way.  Right, urgency is a second dimension
and it even has a name. :)

I am afraid someone may be able to name further dimensions, so instead of
adding ":urgency" as well, I suggest to allow non-numeric string values
for ":importance", or however that single that-stuff-matters-to-me-option
should be called.  But again, it's just a feeling there may be more.

Philosophy at IETF; who would have thought that.
