If that really turns out to be a problem we can use 'assumed multiple' instead,
but I would start with untriaged.

Hmm? Using 'multiple' instead of 'all' was suggested to make people more
confident about using it: If a bug as reported on OSX and you confirm it on
Linux, you can safely say it affects multiple platforms, but you cannot be
absolutely certain it affects 'all' platform. Thus 'multiple' instead of 'all'
might make triager more confident and bolder.
