I'm still confused - why do we allow people to upload attachments that
are not intended for inclusion?

I can see one very reasonable reason from a user point of view - the
example they want to upload is business related and so they want to do
their best to explain the problem to us, but not to have us publish
those details any further. However that reason doesn't hold up as it's
public if it's in our JIRA and if we don't know the license on it,
then can we even use it to resolve the issue?

What makes an attachment special? Why don't we have to do this for
comments and the jira issue itself?

Not seeing why we don't just say:  "All issues + attachments are
intended for inclusion".
