I've never heard of joint assignments. I think you would definitely need
a lawyer, and probably an accountant, in that case. My guess is that, in
the UK, the result would actually be that the license was assigned to
a trust with both parties as trustees. I think that would mean that the
licensor for the different parts of a composite work would, technically
be different. IANAL a lawyer and the only advice here is that you would
need one in this case.
(If a couple jointly own a house, the actual owner is a trust.)
