As I noted in the earlier email, when I have 3+ PostMatch interceptors, some of them global, some of them name-bound, I'd hate go and add numbers to those interceptors in order to get some predictability in the way they be selected, this does not seem cool at all.

 The default priority is defined to be USER. If the filter/interceptor is not annotated with @BindingPriority, then just assume USER. What's the difficulty in doing that?
