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.

Well, we've been referring to this as the 'semantics' change for a
while. The semantics of the change are that ASSIGNED should be 'owned'
by the package maintainer(s); they use it for whatever purpose is
appropriate to them. That's how it's described on the updated lifecycle
page. Following that logic, it doesn't make sense even for FEver to set
ASSIGNED when reporting bugs, as that is usurping the privilege of the
maintainer(s). Fr'instance, for a package with multiple maintainers,
they may only want to set the bug to ASSIGNED after picking one
particular maintainer to be responsible for the version update.
