    I think I accomplish the same use case by configuring my recordings to
    be sorted by priority (in title-only mode). This makes it easier to
    navigate to the "important" stuff.

    When would the "Watch List" contents significantly diverge from
    recording priority and hold low-priority items?

For me, because I don't use recording priorities at all, and for the
case where I'm holding something for someone else to watch that might
be unrelated to its original priority even if I -was- using priorities,
and a zillion other use cases I could dream up.

I think having a "Watch List" is a great idea.
