I suspect the reason why import wins is that if it were the other way
round you'd have to know more about the sheets you were importing.

Take a big collection like Norm's DocBook stylesheets, you can import
that then make customisations with templates in your top level stylesheet
and you know anything you define wins. You can treat Norm's code as a
black box. (I know this doesn't always work, but...)
If priority won then you would have to know the priorities of the
templates in all the docbook stylesheets, so you could make sure your
customisations had higher priority.
