They refer to the "effective priority", I think. Probably, the reason 
is that if you nest PI and PP locks then you may end up having the 
Unbounded Priority Inversion (TM) problem if the locker's "effective 
priority" (inherited one) is higher than the ceiling. I may be missing 
and/or misunderstanding something, of course.
