I don't play multiplayer much anymore, but the last time I went into a game and kindly refused to leave the other players became quite indignant and they were demanding I leave, trying to cuss at me, and threatening to report me (although I was unable to report as I ended up losing the evidence :b). I could understand their frustration, as they were saving a spot, but their reaction was over the top. Open games are meant for everyone to play and enjoy, after all.
If they kindly ask to leave, I usually will, but again, open games should be played by everyone and new players should be welcomed. Most people are kind, but still, there are the more demanding people out there.
People should reserve the right to save spots, but must keep in mind that other people that join should be accepted with open arms anyways.
I do not think they should be able to "reserve" spots. As you said --

They are either open games or private games. If they want to have particular people join games, they should create a private game (although yes, the feature does not work as well as it once did). "Open" games are called "open" games for a reason -- everyone
should be allowed to join, and no one
should be excluded. "Saving spots" accomplishes exclusion.
