Reassignment is different than adding a license or providing the material under an 
additional/different license.

Reassignment is about copyright.  Let's not go there.

Still, offering a license from a multiple-author work does raise issues about the arrangement among 
those authors and how such things as assignment and licensing are arrived at.  That's whatever the 
arrangement is and what it allows.  I have nothing to say about any matter of that sort.

Sounds like it is best to stick with a Creative Commons license only for LO
with the author(s) having the rights to reassign to others as they wish. The
problem with reassignment, if I understand copyrights, is that all the
holders must agree or it not valid.

I disagree. Dennis has covered well in various notes the situation
with including the Apache license in a dual license arrangement.
