Well, please elaborate what is your problem...  Do you really want to
attach binary files with mail-attach-file?  I think it is not feasible
and most people use uuencode before attaching.

I believe that Emacs commands which read binary contents are carefully
designed whether or not to do automatic decoding (i.e. mml-attach-file
in Gnus).  If you find _real problems_, please let me know.

Agreed.  Unfortunatelly the improvement is not as easy to implement as
expected.  This would also be a feature request.

Though there is no fall back mechanism, you can stop it manually by:

C-u -1 M-x auto-encryption-mode
