 Hi @nidhishanker ! There was some discussion about this in a recent media
 meeting and we had some concerns around this feature giving folks the
 ability to break content without knowing. In posts, it is easy to change
 slugs and redirect as we need because it is the final content rendered
 when making a request. For attachments it could conflict with existing

 Do you have any thoughts around how this could be avoided? Ideally a
 feature like this would account for all uses of the Media to update them,
 but I suspect theres some hidden complexity in there.
