Assigned unless declared otherwise seems very practical.  I can put it
to some use (to my own ends).

I am willing to send patches against Emacs Bzr trunk [1].  But, I need
to be personally convinced that my patches will be diligently and

I admit that my exercising of a right - right to not assign - is not

I do want my changes to be in Emacs (ultimately) but not the immediate
major release or until the circumstances change.
