Org-mode power users in need of finer-grained priority control already
have the option of widening the range of priorities with
org-highest-priority and org-lowest-priority or a #+PRIORITIES line. One
could also use custom "tags" + a user defined sorting command to
accomplish something similar.

I believe that, as a rule, if a peculiar use-case can already be
accomplished with current hooks and variables, a new way of doing the
same thing should not be hard-coded, unless it dramatically simplifies
the code and user experience.
