This was just one particular situation, but I'm sure there are also situations where you might want to edit a message by including additional attachements, without having to send a second message - where you'd want them all in the same archived message.
Doesn't that have a rather anomalous outcome? Members using the web UI would see the amended or additional attachment(s) while those reading by email would not because the correction / addition(s) would not be sent out to them; by definition, the lack of a further email would mean that email users would have no idea about the changes that had taken place.

Far better IMHO (and possibly quicker!) to reissue the message (including an apology if appropriate) with the corrected / additional material followed by the deletion of the original from the message archive.
