Hm, maybe I have been misunderstood here.
I didn't see the assigned-to in a way that when somebody masks a package 
(maybe for security issues) he sets someone else to be responsible for it.

I rather meant it as a statement that when someone tries to solve the 
issue, sets that as a note, so people know who they should contact in 
case they have to add something.

For unwritten, we do that by modifying the comments.
Obviously, that could be another way, maybe a better way, I'm not sure 
about it.

Anyway, I didn't mean the assign-to to be something that introduces some 
kind of »mask-wrangling«.
