Why 10 rather than 1, or 271000000.0057683456127458945386235?

Priorities greater than 0.5 are all essentially arbitrary. That is,
the absolute magnitude is not important - only whether it is bigger
or smaller than others.

So 1002 is a guess that no other priorities are defined bigger than
this for any pattern that might match the nodes concerned. or if they
are, then they are more important.

Since you would have picked 10, David has out-guessed you. :-)
