Ability to Add Custom Fields to the Attachments Object

Customization & App Building

It would be very helpful to enable the ability to add a custom field or two to the Attachments object, such as, Attachment Type.  There is an increased use of our attachments object and it would be very helpful to categorize the type of attachment documents users are appending to the system.  This would help with sorting and searching for specific documents, such as contracts, orders or support emails.

The only solutions available seem to be creating a custom object that allows attachments.  This does not provide the rollup feature that the system attachments object provides.
