 If Set_Priority on an entry caller were really intended to affect the
 active priority of a rendezvous-in-progress, then why would D.4(11) go
 to the trouble to say "and the call is queued"?  This intent is
 also supported by the NOTE in D.11(17):
 
-        17  If a task becomes held while waiting (as a caller) for a

 the task being directly affected, not other inheritors:

 Presumably, the implementation would extend this deferral of priority
