For what it's worth, anybody can do that right now. You don't have to be
"assigned" a ticket to leave comments on it. You don't need to reopen it to
tell an author there are problems you've found.

I honestly never liked the assigning of tickets in the first place. It's
too rigid, IMO. I realize that we need order and fairness, but the
assignment system seems to imply that there is only one reviewer per theme,
and that's absolutely not the case. If you want to go pick a waiting theme
at random, find problems in it, and post them in that ticket, then by all
means, do so. A problem discovered but not posted helps nobody.

There's nothing preventing anybody from reviewing any theme they want at
any time, just by leaving comments on a ticket to tell a theme author about
the issues. If a theme is fully good by the time admins get to it, then
it's quicker all around, no? Okay, it's more disorderly. But we're all
adults; we can deal with a little disorder.
