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.
