What does your Incident Management policy state
about Priority, Urgency & Impact when classifiying a ticket
What does your incident mgmt. policy say about changing classifications - either upward or downward

I'm not sure why you would downgrade a prioritized ticket, unless the initial response was in error - and then, as UKVIKING states, I would check your priority matrix.

Was the impact misdiagnosed? Urgency can sometimes be tough to diagnose but your SLA should clear up any confusion.

I can think of no good reason (other than mis-prioritisation) that you would downgrade the priority of a ticket. If you have received a P2 and it was a P2 then it should be closed as a P2.

If it was poorly prioritised it should be reprioritised before closure.

Only Problems should be prioritised based on current state like this.

From an auditor's view point I would suspect downgrading priority of incident to avoid an SLA breach :), as It's not a good practice.
However, the only reason I see here should be inaccurate impact / urgency analyzed. the best practice is to predefine priorities as per SLA in co-ordination with business community and stakeholders who understands impact better rather than leaving it to customize on choice of service desk.
If your policy permits you may downgrade it but it;s not recommended.
