There does not seem to be any setting for this.

Also even when the priority is higher existing streams are not going
to be redirected. You either have to restart the application or use
some pulseaudio foo to redirect the stream by hand.

So in the end you probably want the scripts that switch playback
between different sinks manually regardless of priority
