Tier 0 isn’t really a thing—JaronK’s tier list enjoys a lot of consensus, but only includes tiers 1 through 6. That list mentions the truenamer as being basically broken and not really fitting into the tiers, which is sometimes referred to as tier 7 (or simply “truenamer tier”), but beyond that there are just the six. Furthermore, for the most part, the ...

The wizard does eventually catch up with the ur-priest, ...

Actually, prestige classes don't have fixed classes as prerequisites. D&D 3rd edition intentionally designs prestige classes so that while they're generally geared toward a certain character class, they're not restricted to that class. This is why you get prerequisites like "Base attack bonus +5" rather than "Fighter level 5", so that for example a 7th ...
