That's not the same story. You cannot assign a bug to you if you cannot
see it. But here, if I want to know the deadline of a bug I can see,
then all I need to do is to briefly assign the bug to me. If the goal is
to guarantee some confidentiality, then this is a weak protection
(except that this would prevent users with no privs from seeing it, and
social pressure would prevent users trying to abuse this trick).
