I like this idea! A simple "traffic light" system: green assigned by current selected FO, Orange assigned by another, Red unassigned/off net. Either a small coloured block or have the Name or ID of the artillery change colour in the bombardment screen.

To Imp, I only play scenarios from the game, I don't roll my own so I guess the answer to your question is option 1.
The traffic light system sounds like a really good idea, although a fourth colour would be ideal to differentiate between unassigned and out of contact.
