The possibility that I might want to send a priority 0 (normal)
message FROM a conforming system TO a conforming system seems not
to be considered.
ok.  It will be easy to add text and stating up front that a value of zero, by default, indicates 
"normal".  And then add the existing caveats.  And by "normal", I assume that 
we are in agreement that this describes the best effort service model that exists today as if the 
proposed extension never existed.
I've tried to clarify this by removing "or intended to be sent", as this is not relevant here. My current text reads:

     A value of 0 indicates an email from a client/network not
supporting priorities, which is the same as not specifying the PRIORITY parameter, i.e. this value will cause the standard SMTP behaviour in absence of this extension.

Is this better?
