So then they rule becomes that only "?" directly following a "!" are
TODO: Check with project X ? --> prio 0
TODO: Check with project X ? ! --> prio 1
TODO: Check with project X ? !? --> prio 0
TODO: Check with project X ? !?? --> prio -1
TODO: Some action ! - really needed ? --> prio 1
TODO: Some action !? --> prio 0
TODO: Some action !?? --> prio -1
This semantic would show that negative prios reflect the amount of
confusion there is about the action item - somehow that feels right to me -
you start with a clear prio and as the amount of confusion grows it drops
to the bottom of the list :)
