Yes, AttachFile is rather old & crappy code, a quick hack from 2001. No 
news. :)

We are trying to unify attachments with page storage, there has been 
some work by Heinrich Wendel in SOC 2007, but it needs some more work 
before we can switch to the new backend.

After that, attachments will be handled by same code as page items, will 
have revisions, own ACLs, other metadata, same UI functions, etc.

I guess this will also be solved by that.
