Rather than making it to be reassigned to something else,
it might be better to retitle it to make it look
"ITP-uploaded: package - description"
"Uploaded: package - description"
and still assigned to wnpp.
It will make clearer which packages are still in preparation
and which are not (which is not obvious in the current state),
and not make ftp.debian.org overloaded with bugs.
But it's one more step to the procedure, and
I guess it will add to the confusion / manual mistakes.
