No, we have yellow diamond priority signs and I understand their importance. I never saw a main road that gives priority to a small street.

The usage is not very standardized in different European county. In Austra, a "Bundesstraße" with a blue number board has prority, but not those with round yellow number board. So the diamond sign is not very common on Austria's main roads.

In germeny, for example, the "chopsticks" Autobahn signs implies the priority of the Autobahn traffic. But in Belgium, it's another thing: There, the diamond sign is used extensivly on the autoroutes/snelwegen.

Really? I have cruised many roads in Niederosterreich and have seen lots of them. Moreover, there was a blue number board attached under it.
