I still think it should be used at least as a secondary key, which will
do well in cases where no BindingPriority is used on filters.

If I have 2 global and 3 name-bound filters, I'm not keen and adding 1,
2, 3, 4, 5 priority annotations, but I'd like to make sure global
filters are executed say before name-bound filters
