    initial v1  
    99Any "solution" to this seems equally annoying from a UI perspective, as one would need to declare that an item is either attached to another object or is a global asset to be referenced as a unique independent asset.

    11 One that comes to mind, but isn't obvious without people discovering it through trial and error, is that if an item is uploaded by Media > Add New, it is an independent object. If it's inserted into a post via the "Add Media" button in the post editor screen, it becomes tied to that object as it currently does. 
     11One that comes to mind, but isn't obvious without people discovering it through trial and error, is that if an item is uploaded by Media > Add New, it is an independent object forever. If it is ever inserted into a post via the "Add Media" button later, it remains independent and is only accessed via the HTML code that gets inserted into the post. If it's initially inserted into a post via the "Add Media" button in the post editor screen, it becomes tied to that object as it currently does.
