The command `image-dired-dired-insert-marked-thumbs' was designed only
to insert thumbnails. I agree it would be nice to improve it to allow
also to remove thumbnails with a change like you propose. However,
currently I'm not sure what would be the best user interface for this.
You propose that `C-t C-t' will toggle thumbnails for marked files.
Another option would be to synchronize thumbnails with marks, i.e.
typing `C-t C-t' will add thumbnails to marked files, and remove
thumbnails from unmarked files. That's for my typical workflow of using
this command: I usually mark some files and type `C-t C-t' to display
thumbnails. Later I mark more files and type `C-t C-t' again to
display more thumbnails, and so on. Toggling like you proposed
would hide previous thumbnails on marked files that is undesirable.
But OTOH I could unmark all files before adding more thumbnails.
