Not killing the file or the db record of the file on node delete is a
huge plus in my books.  It means that it could be possible to
re-attached to a different (or multiple) nodes without the user having
to upload again.

Upload once - use often.

There would be no UI (yet) - but contrib modules could fill the void.
