Well, you don't need to impose it. It can have a default value and
developers can change it.

Personally I do find priority in bugzilla unclear wrt severity, but only
because the user which is submitting the bug is required to set it.
That's totally dumb, a priority is something only for the developers
which want to organize their, well, priorities.

I agree that is possible to emulate priorities with what we already
have. But expressivity does not necessarily make things straightforward.
