Hi Daniel,

Very nice simple design. I like it.

I would like to see support for LABELPRIORITYITEM.

You probably need to add a comment to the RFC on how you plan to handle 
out of range values. I think clamping them to the min/max seems 
reasonable, unless you have another idea.

We had an extensive discussion in a few bugs about label priorites in 
the past. I haven't had time to look them up and review them, but it 
might be appropriate for completeness to reference them in the RFC and 
comment that they were/were not considered and/or that they are 
generally in/out of scope of this effort.
