As a similar thing is already done for page names: No.
So feel free to do that. If you make a nice clean patch we might even
include it into 1.3.
There won't be bigger changes though, as we will replace attachments in
the next major release completely.

Maybe you need to use a useragent string that is not listed on the
blacklist of moin. Usually you DON'T want a search engine to trigger
actons, therefore most of those bots and tools are on the blacklist and
forbidden for actions.
