Okay, that sounds plausible about the origins ... I used the Debian Code
Search (thanks, Ralph!  Didn't know about it!) and it seems like most of
the uses of it appear in regression tests for OTHER MUAs.  It doesn't
sound like anyone objects if we drop support for sending this via attach
(users are of course free to construct their own headers via mhbuild
directives and include whatever MIME parameters they want).

And I've got to agree with Earl ... sure seems like a big potential
security problem to me.
