This is precisely how we do those roles.

Requestor & Cc:
* ReplyToTicket
* ShowTicket

* CommentOnTicket
* ReplyToTicket
* ShowTicket
* ShowTicketComments

As for owner, they'll already have rights in the queue by virtue of 
being a worker in it.  At least in my setup they do.  It seems to work 
pretty well for giving permissions to users that have a vested interest 
in a given ticket, but not having specific permissions in the queue.
