I disagree with leaving maintainer-needed as default assign, if you will
fix bugs when you have time it's better than what I will do with
maintainer-needed packages. 

Also, I think most of maintainers would like to have help with a lot of
packages, but that is not enough reason to change their metadatas to get
bugs assigned to maintainer-needed and us CCed

Have you seen any case when "if anyone wants to take it" he is not able
to because the package is "owned" by a herd? 

If you want to promote that package be taken by other as soon as
possible, add a note to metadata telling that (I have seen it in some
cases)
