Thanks. I've taken my best guess at priority based on how much impact I
think the issue is having for Tomcat users.

 18 - getRequestURI() and friends
105 - getRealPath() what is a virtual path
 11 - getRealPath() for paths that don't but could exist
 82 - Use of threadlocals
 20 - Welcome 'servlets'
 26 - Invalid HTTP header names/values
 88 - escaping of error messages
 21 - Pre-emptive authentication
  7 - Filters and welcome files
 52 - multiple matches to the same filter
 25 - Filters that modify request bodies

As I was going through the open issues there looks to be quite a few
small enhancement requests that we could make some headway on as well.
