Because I'm not confident someone will regularly take care of assigning 
the not-specified tickets, and I don't want lose useful bug reports 
because of that. I've been reading all the coming in tickets in the last 
few days to ensure that doesn't happen.

Anyway, if you feel strongly that the current setup is the right one, 
keep it... I'll ignore not-specified tickets and we will see how it goes...
