Merging comments from duplicate task T115016:

..which would be https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Project_management#Setting_task_priorities
I created this task based on confusion / different interpretations described in T103556#1458377

IMHO this won't work. "Priority" is a simple English word, and few people will think that they need to look that up to report a bug. If "Priority" is confusing/misleading, renaming it to "Team's own priority"/"Lead team priority"/etc. would solve the issue. But to direct users to read through lots of text instead of a simple "Don't touch!" which is true in 99 % of all cases is wasteful of their time and energy.
