 Media Library, so the photo people upload the media with all associated
 EXIF data and that's all they have to do. But once they hit upload, they
 can't edit any of the associated metadata for that media without giving
 them `edit_posts`. ''That's'' the problem.

 only edit attachment meta, tags, etc.

 Yes, its the photo guy who should fill those fields in. Im working at a
 newspaper (circa #12 in RU in our country) and really need to add
 capability to edit attachments for lesser roles (photo guy AND external
 bloggers who have permissions only for a CPT (not posts))
