No, please leave out the Priority and Section until the distribution
maintainer (Carl, is that you ?) has decided what values they should

These fields are not mandatory, and you should not preempt the
distribution maintainer's decision like this.

It is important that the package classifications (especially
priorities) are decided on centrally, to avoid a `priority inflation'
effect where every maintainer obviously thinks their particular
packages are important ...
