Ok. I would really like attachments to be integrated with refiling though even if it was a non-default option. Another feature that could improve the use of attachments is to allow links to the attached folders also via the C-c C-l interface in a similar way as stored links (C-c l ). I.E to get the attachment-folder as an item in the C-c C-l buffer with TAB-completion.

I use org-attach regularly and consider it to be a great feature of
org-mode. Since I only attach to the sub-tree (instead of to a different
file) I have not this problem. However, sometimes a set the attach
directory of two different headings to the same folder (when it makes
sense) and if org always moved the attached files it would break the other

An alternative is to change the attach directory in the archived entry to
point to the original attach directory where the files are. When archiving
to a file in a different folder org could ask if it should also move the
attached files or simply change the attach directory accordingly (I would
prefer this as the default if "ask" as the default was considered too
