Orgmode has been losing some of its elegance to feature requests. And
by 'elegance' I mean ease of learning and using and maintaining, and
not having to decide between N different ways of achieving something
just because so many border-case features exist.

The agenda is for things you have to do today. Just do them.

If you need ordering, you have outlines and lists, properties, LISP,
hooks, column view, custom agenda views, etc.

That may be a fair point (although I tend to think that most of the features in orgmode are really useful). I'd like to point out, however, that the proposed change is completely backward compatible. If you don't want finer grained priorities, just don't add -<NUM>.

Personally, I vote yes because I find the priorities in TODO lists very useful. In addition, I often find that I want to insert a new item between two existing ones and therefore having fine-grained priorities makes this easy to do.
