Option to notify assignees of subtasks created from a request form

There are certain times when we would like the assignees of subtasks to be notified in their inbox that the task has been assigned to them when the task is created through a request form.  Currently, the assignee of the master task is notified but not the subtask assignees.  When something is time sensitive, it could be easily missed since it only shows up in the dashboard.  It would be great to have the option to notify or not notify assignees as necessary.

Thanks for asking, Juan.
It's pretty simple: we use a request form to create a set of tasks from a blueprint. We end up with one main "request task" and ~5 subtasks, each assigned to different people. In order to coordinate the the fulfillment of this request, we need to notify the assignees of these subtasks multiple times. So far we've been copying the same message into all these subtasks. What we do now is manually adding the subtask assignees as followers of the main task, so we can do a @followers notification. This is better, but still not great because the assignees of the subtasks may change over time.
The ideal solution IMHO would be to introduce @subtaskassignees (or @subassignees), which would notify them all at once.
