Definitely not. Why should something that's being done regularly be low
priority?
I'd like my nightly backups to be over as fast as possible for instance.
As a normal user I also have one or two things that are started with
@reboot in my crontab - they too should have normal priority.

I understand your ranting, I do so myself occasionally, but some of what
you complain about is easily taken care by configuring your system as
you want it. The YaST installer cannot guess your usage pattern, nor
what you intend to use the machine for, so SUSE has probably chosen
what they consider a reasonable compromise.
