Well... assignment, in Launchpad, means "the person who is responsible
for fixing this bug". While today the UI may make that not such a hard
constraint, it's likely to evolve in this direction over the future,
which is why I'm saying it's ideal if we align our visions.

Not really. You can't, for instance, email the team (unless it has a
contact email address, which is a bit of a corner case).

Hmmm. What's the practical difference between the two things, apart from
email notifications?

What do you mean by "more visibility"? I think we're getting somewhere,
but not sure where yet! :-)
