I didn't mean that the present SRFI should include procedures to query
other processes. I meant naming the procedures we do have in such a way
that it will be easy to make symmetrical extensions in the future.

Ah.  In that case I agree that process-process-group sounds weird, but so does mapping-map (at least it's not map-map).  Systematism is more important than euphony in this case.
If "priority" is generally understood as a dynamic concept then it's
best to stick with that. From that point of view, niceness is a priority

On Windows, it seems they just talk about setting the priority:
<https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4208/windows-equivalent-of-nice>. I
can't find distinctive words for priority and priority hint there.

*shrug*  As always, implementations for Windows have to do the best they can.
