Feature request: delegating patches to others than maintainers

Currently, Patchwork only allows to delegate patches to developers who
are registered as "maintainers" of the project in Patchwork. This is a
bit annoying as "maintainers" in the Patchwork sense have the power to
change the state of *any* patch.

In the context of the Buildroot project, it would sometimes be nice to
delegate the handling of a patch to a certain developer (who is neither
the submitter of the patch nor a maintainer of the project).

So do you think it would be possible to adjust the Delegate logic so
that maintainers can delegate to all developers of the project, and
once a patch has been delegated to a given developer, this develop gets
the same rights as the submitter of the patch (i.e can change the
status of the patch) ?
