Windows 7: setting process priority

I've read somewhere (I forget where) that individual process priorities are ignored if Multimedia Class Scheduler service is running in Windows 7. Here's the description of Multimedia Class Scheduler:

"Enables relative prioritization of work based on system-wide task priorities. This is intended mainly for multimedia applications. If this service is stopped, individual tasks resort to their default priority."

But is this true?

The Multimedia Class Scheduler process seems to be only required by a windows audio service -- and once that audio service is loaded, the Multimedia Class Scheduler process terminates. But if it's terminated how is it going to control prioritization of work?
