Later discussions implied that this is not necessary since Components already maps directly to modules and so to maintainers. Also that it would mean introducing more complexity and we should probably not do it (which is where the decision stands now).

I think such tasks should become Unassigned.

Unassigned should be the default. When someone picks up the task, they should assign it to themselves. Anything else is misleading.
