I want to try using them in an Uber boss killing strategy and I'm wondering if the ranged magic attacks will favor them over me.

By far most monsters are at 10, including Blunderbore-type monsters. Inanimate monsters have lower. Player minions, Superuniques, Vampires and monsters that can resurrect have a threat value higher than 10. Act bosses are at 14 btw :)

Close, but not quite. AFAIK it used primarily for minions and mercs to decide which monster they should attack.

Yep, though I'm pretty sure that at some point Diablo and Baal check your geographical location and attack you if you're from Finland >:/ They're always after me :p

It seems to me this works when monsters pick players to attack also. Is it based on who does the most damage? I notice this most easily when a party is huddled around one boss.
