Add a way to make specific issues visible to a user
I have a role defined with issue visibility set to "Issues created by or assigned to the user". It would be great if I can make a certain issue visible to that user by adding them as a watcher. As it is, they can't see any pre-created issue without me assigning it to them.

I think this is essentially the same as #8488. Though that issue was looking to extend visibility for private issues, in practice we're talking about the same action--a new kind of involvement in addition to author/assignee.
It also somewhat relates to one of my own feature requests (selfplug+10!), #12666, for this to be part of configuring the user-type custom field. Specifically, an optional check box when setting up a custom field that, when checked, means the user(s) selected in the list are involved in the issue.
Permissions don't really need to be any more complex than existing workflow tools.

watchers were designed for notification purpose only. A user who unwatches a private issue would lost access to it. It may be quite confusing for many users.
