Would like ability to assign to ALL people added to the task. Close only after all people finish the task. Once I complete the task it should fall off my personal list but stay up for a Yonex that has not yet completed it.

I would strongly suggest implementation to follow the RACI model.
Only one personal Accountable [A] multiple people Responsible if desired [R]
and again, multiple people Consulted [C] and Informed [I]
Yes please, basic functionality!

Maybe keep one person responsible for a task : yes,
but having the ability to assign more people on this with other role level : that would be great

I understand that the idea behind "one assigned person per card" is likely to create unambiguous responsibility. This is a good argument. However, there are real scenarios where multiple people are "involved" in a card and the project team wants to track their involvement by "assigning" all of them to the card. If Planner allowed multiple people to be assigned to a single card, then teams would have the freedom to choose if they want to exploit that capability or not.
Giving teams the freedom to self-organize around their own processes is very important. Adding "multiple user assignments" would be granting this freedom and move away from imposing processes on users that don't work for them.
Make one person responsible for chasing the other people on this sub task. Too many people responsible for a single task lets people hide
