Thanks for trying to move us back to a more H2-like prioritization scheme, but for some reason I was under the impression we were going to allow weights of 0 rather than creating an orphan placeholder, which seems like an entirely new concept and also makes H3 priorities subtly different from H2 priorities in a new way?

Admittedly, I can implement my priorities using the weight of 0 concept anyway, since the orphan placeholder is a completely theoretic construct which cannot be referenced by a client, but it's also a non-obvious construct to me.
