This is not what he suggests. You choose from "above 10" according to your 
*preference*. e.g. rpmforge = 11, epel = 12 etc.
That's also what I do, by accident. But I have the base repo's at 0 and 
not 1.
And usually you want to have some gap between the figures, so you can 
easily rearrange (use 10, 15, 20 instead of 10,11,12).

I think it's quite clear, but following your question I suggest a small 
edit:
Third Party Repos ... priority=N  (where N is > 10 and 
based on your preference for that repo)
