Customizer Sections and Panels default to being at the top, not the bottom

One of the concerns with panels always being at the top of the Customizer is that they push down the title & tagline section. But new Customizer sections that don't specify a priority get a default priority of 10, which is before all core sections. We should change the default to be at the bottom, after all core sections and with some breathing room for custom sections that want to be before unspecified/default ones. Panels inherit this same priority, since they're implemented as a subclass of sections. The lowest core section is static front page at 120; I'm suggesting 160 for default (all of the core section priorities are multiples of 20, that leaves a "core" space in between, plus all intermediate values).

This came up during dev chat when discussing our options for #28979 at length, see logs. Putting on 4.0 per that discussion, #28979, and because this is a really simple, one-character change/fix. Yes, it moves existing sections around that didn't specify priorities, and yes, that's okay because they didn't specify a priority and things are moving around a bit anyway in 4.0 with panels. I'm much more comfortable with suggesting not specifying your own priority (which you usually shouldn't really need to do in a plugin) if the default is 160.

This is fixed for panels now that they're their own class (default 160). Patch should still work for sections.
