A really useful feature for new labeling engine would be to add a data-defined Priority property.

Currently, it's only possible to set one priority per layer. When used on e.g. a road network layer, it is not possible to tell QGIS to first label high-level roads. Instead, you might end up with labels on some minor roads but none on the high-level roads.
