IIRC for such backdoored downloads CVE IDs were assigned in the past

I suspect that no distributions provide the affected code this time.
So if affected distributions is the only reason for CVE ID assignment in
this case, it might make sense to postpone CVE ID allocation until we
learn of an affected distribution (which we probably won't).
