For myself, since the Latin Church has no official position, neither do I.
The Latin Church has an official position. Again, here is the Apostolic Constitution:

I think this is one of the issues with dogmatizing.

Before the Assumption was made dogma in the West, the Orthodox and Catholics had identical beliefs on it. As soon as one part is declared dogma, people either stop believing the other part, or otherwise question it, where no one would have before.
