Comment (by fjarrett):

 Hey @azaozz, thanks for chiming in on this!

 > Is there any advantage in hiding uploaded files from other trusted
 users? I don't see any.

 But the attachment is actually visible to ''the world'', not just trusted
 logged-in users.

 1. Open the Customizer and upload a new header image
 2. Do not click Save & Publish - just exit the Customizer
 3. Go to the Media Library and click the image to open the Attachment
 Details modal
 4. Click "View attachment page" - this is a public URL

 Making images public to the world ''without clicking Save & Publish'' is
 definitely an unexpected UX.

 The current behavior of attachments added during a Customizer session make
 the '''Save & Publish''' button a partial truth.
