So is this imposing policy change through system updates without discussing it
with those affected or were there people involved in the triaging process
that were consulted?

Currently in LP assigned means this is the person who is expected to take the
next step on the bug (for example when I set a bug to needs info, I generally
assign it to the reporter to make this clear).
I'm not sure how taking away triaging tools aligns with your stated goal?
