Comment (by Krstarica):

 @galbaras has a point. There are several ways media can be handled:
 1) Upload media during post editing
 2) Add existing media in the new post
 3) Upload media using Media Library, then use it in the post
 4) Reference existing media using custom field/plugin

 WordPress creates relationship between media and post for (1) scenario
 only. This should be definitely reviewed (in the new ticket?)

 In the meantime we should probably completely remove post_parent check,
 because we don't have a clue whether media is added to the post using (2),
 (3) and (4) scenario.
