Failing to do so is not only disrespectful, but may also result in unnecessary work.  It could be that the assignee has been making progress on the problem - code or otherwise - that would be duplicated by the new assignee.  Or the assignee could have specialized knowledge that makes them best equipped to fix the bug.  In any case, please ensure that bugs are not reassigned without the involvement of the current assignee.

Note that the bug updates script may switch assignees when a new patch
claiming to fix the bug is submitted for review in Gerrit...
