If you define milestone 1 .. milestone N, and assign issues to them,
this is a way to prioritize issues, and a way to measure how close you
are to the next milestone. 'X issues left before the next release' is
useful information to have, isn't it ? Of course, you can attach more
to a milestone (such as an ETA).
I only introduced it as a suggestion to replace numerical priorities.

Whether this makes sense for your development process is something I
can't judge at all.

Thanks,
