Comment (by jb510):

 @johnbillion playing devil's advocate a little.

 If people want to update/change the url, they should use update_option(),
 which perhaps the Codex should make clear.

 Currently _if_ someone is using something like:

     define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);
     define('WP_HOME', 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);

 On their local/staging install and go to insert an image, it picks up the
 production url from the DB.  Changing that behavior might have follow on
 consequences. Maybe trivial, just that it worth noting.

 Please don't take this as opposing changing it.  I do think it's
 unexpected behavior from a user's POV, even if it's has always has been
 that way.
