Comment (by hailin):

 The tricky part is that user may or may not click "insert into post"
 User can just copy and paste the "file url" into Write post box.

 Plus, the same image URL can be inserted or pasted into multiple posts,
 then the
 post_parent notion becomes ambiguous. Imagine when we need to build more
 on that 1-1 assumption...

 A fairly large percentage of existing images and other types of media
 become "orphans" after switch to this logic. It's not easy to rectify this
