A mailing list works only if you have a small group of core developers who can independently organize the incoming mails using local tools, such as the read/unread marking of the email client. For a larger group this doesn't work (how do you assign a patch to someone using a mailing list?).
If you can filter patches by module (and it can be done automatically), then you won't need to assign patches. People can subscribe to interested parts and participate independently.
That's not true. Assignment isn't meant to make searching issues easier, it's meant for the developers to help them collect and work on their tasks.
