Mostly to prioritize screen update refresh rates. Do you really need
your GPS location to update within a 20ms interval?

Humans can see a single frame drop, easily. Audio is critical too.
Sensor data (apart from touch) is almost irrelevant at the scale that
humans can detect.

Also, even with Nice values set high, applications can still be low
latency. They do not necessarily conflict.
