That’s a fair point.

I don't have anything against it, but in OP he also talks about
implementing something similar for ox-$BACKEND output...  Which doesn’t
seem like a bad request.  Why should org-attachment support git-annex
other parts of Org not?  But I don’t think we want to support annexed
files in general.  (What about LFS’ed files?  Assuming a similar feature

Perhaps I’m abstracting too much here.
