A few publishers assigned Righthaven LLC the right to sue over infringement of said publishers’ copyrights, while retaining all other rights.
A court stomped on that idea, deciding that Righthaven had no standing to sue over a copyright they didn't own.
Sounds to me to be precisely the mechanism suggested above—it won’t work, at least in the U.S.
