I don't have any experience with upstream release monitoring, NEW, FutureFeature, Triaged would be correct for continuity. However, if people are used to ASSIGNED would making this change be a benefit or cause confusion?

The bugzappers made the change because there was a benefit in terms of the bugzappers and maintainers/developers working relationship. Maybe I am thinking on this harder than it needs but without experience with upstream release monitoring I can't say this change brings any benefit other than continuity.
You would probably know best the pros and cons this change would have and whether you should implement it for your project.

Maybe Adam will have a different take but those are my initial thoughts.
