I do not use priority-as-calculated.  That is, I don't sort by
closeness to deadline, etc.  That way, everything is in a consistent
order, which I find pleasing.  I sort by my fixed urgency and
priority-as-set-by-user.  This almost certainly violates GTD, but
priorities and urgencies work for me.  Org flexibly supports any
method you want.

I do, however, rely on the agenda's built-in faces, and the second
colum that says "Deadline" etc., for status.  These are very useful.

I have a thorough testcase for this and found several potential bugs
that I will report on in a separate post.
