I don't think that it's a matter of right and wrong. In fact, I can
think of a few times I wished the ITP owner had left a note about the
status. In the past I've come across ITPs that have not been closed
after months where it seemed as if the owner had simply disappeared.
After asking in the bug if I could take over the ITP, I then received
very valid reasons why the work had stalled (and would have stalled no
matter who was the owner).

I see no reason why adding a note would be "wrong." It seems to me
that it could only be helpful.

Alternatively/additionally, if you send an RFS, you could include the
ITP bug in the CC.
