The system has an “accepted” state for tickets precisely so that a
maintainer can note that he has it in his queue. This is the way it's
/supposed/ to work (IMO):

* Unreviewed tickets are assigned to the default maintainer, but not
  accepted or commented on by him

* Reviewed tickets are either accepted or reassigned to someone else
