Priority will be built into the industry standard protocol, so no tinkering. Perhaps the standard would accommodate a pay-for-priority model, but I kinda doubt it.

The fact is that people with more means already enjoy higher "priority". If you own a helicopter, you have higher priority than those poor saps stuck in gridlock traffic.

Then there's things like priority plane boarding, or "speed passes" at Disneyland. We're living in a world that already is awash in pay for priority.
