Comment (by wonderboymusic):

 I semi-agree with the JS parts, but not with reverting "detach" in
 general. I agree Attach/Detach is lame, but if you are going to have
 Attach in the list table, there should be Detach.

 When you upload an image using the media modal on the Post screen, and
 then decide to not use that image in the post, you are still stuck with
 this relationship which affects the attachment forever. Namely, its URL.


 Having the Detach link allows the Drew Jaynes related portion the URL to
 go in the dumpster, and this strange post relationship to disappear. If
 indeed you are using something like `[gallery]`, you might expect these
 URLs to operate this way.
