If you want to match any message with this header, you could probably
filter or process using the condition 'header "X-Priority" regexp
".*"' (and the coloring or tagging action of your choice)

Priority is certainly subjective. :)

If you want the priority level to be taken into account, you could
filter or process using several rules, one per priority level. Rule for
priority one would have condition 'header "X-Priority" match "1"' (and
the coloring or tagging action of your choice), rule for priority 2
would mach "2" etc.

You could even use the CM score if you prefer: each priority rule would
set the score to the rule's priority value (priority rule 1 would set
score to 1, priority rule 2 would set score to 2, etc) and then you
could use the score as you like, sorting messages by score (priority),
