Yes, but the granularity's not quite that fine.
Templates with "typical" match patterns like  match="para"
have default priority 0.
Templates with "more specific" match patterns,
like those with multiple steps ("listitem/para") and/or predicates
("listitem/para[1]"), have default priority 0.5.

If you assign your templates explicit priorities, "you may find
that stylesheets are easier to understand and less error-prone".
