Yeah, and the reverse (from a sponsors point of view) is exactly the
problem: The sponsor has to go though *all* bugs to find those waiting
for a sponsor. And that's a problem afaics because they (including me)
often don't do that.  

BTW, where is the problem if you "would rarely look through a
needs-sponsor bugs"? They need a sponsor for review, so if you're no
sponsor you can't do anything there in most cases anyway. Save time for
you, too.

But if others agree with you let's just use use another virtual assignee
