I am afraid that it is not scalable. If a developer has 100 bugs
assigned, it is clear that some of them will be there for years. It
creates false feeling that someone takes care of the bug but is it not

If you have too many bugs assigned, you can't even react on comments
because you would spend the whole day with it.

I personally prefer to put developers into CC if the bug is important
but do not assign it. I would leave the other bugs as is and wait until
someone pick them. I would just make sure that the severity and
component is correct.
