No I don't like the idea of an additional repo priority mapping because
it makes things more complicated rather than easier.

The goal should be to preassign repo priorities in a way so that the
unsuspecting user does not have to change them.

Right.

The reason why I am suggesting default repo priorities is that things
should work out of the box.
Look at bug https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=489124.
Fallacies like these are really unnecessary and can even hit an expert
user hacking compilers like me.

But those bugs wouldn't happen if all repos had priority=99 as a
default. Everything else gets in the way of local policies set by
the system admin.

Cheers,
Michael.
