This would make the priority list global to the P2P Device, i.e., this
would apply to all services. Would that really cover the cases where
multiple services are available? I would expect that different services
could have different preferences for CPT especially since the current
designs would likely only support the UDP option while some newer
services may end up expecting the MAC option to be used.

Should this be done as a per-service (P2P_SERVICE_ADD,
P2P_ASP_PROVISION_RESP, P2P_ASP_PROVISION) parameter instead of an
extension to the global P2P_SET?
