Jesse I think they just want to see for a particular ticket who accessed
it and when.  It would be nice if it was searchable and reportable so
another table does make sense.  But I am not sure how another table
would be accessed from RT.  I also liked the idea of a mutivalue custom
field.  For each user that accessed a ticket it could have 1 entry.

I think an on-display callback that wrote to a custom table or custom
logfile would be your best bet. Do you care about accesses to subpages,
ticket search results, CLI usage, or API usage?
