In my opinion, editing attachments in e-mail and files on item edit
form are different things. When you compose mail, checkboxes mean "I
want to include this file in e-mail", and it's quite intuitive. But
when editing item, unchecking checkbox means "Delete file", which is
not too intuitive. When I saw current solution for the first time in
In-Portal, it tooks few moments to guess how to delete file, though I
knew about this solution (Alex told me). I think that Remove/Delete
link would be more intuitive.
