I'm a newbie so please don't yell if I'm wrong, but what is stated here 
is IMHO false :

Nice values are working the other way : -10 gives a higher priority than 
0 which is also higher than 10. I don't know what way you meant it, 
pointing that just in case.
Also, nice values is a UNIX program that gives/changes priority in terms 
of CPU. If the job is pending, it doesn't solve the problem.
As for the subordinates I also find it very useful to not get into 
mind-wrapping configurations, though it would mean that users have to 
select a queue each time they submit a job (except if it's different 
jobs types)
