[First and foremost the media improvements in WP 3.5 are wonderful, thanks to all involved.]

Now that you can assign taxonomies to media easily, it would be extremely useful if you could also use Bulk Actions > Edit (as you can with posts / pages / custom post) to assign them to multiple images more quickly.

Real world case: we added a taxonomy to media yesterday for a client, so they could categorise their ~500 images into sitewide categories, and they immediately replied to ask if there was a way of doing it in batches...

Hello yeswework’s, thanks for the report and sorry you never got a response.

This feature would require that we have inline edits for attachments too, which we currently have not. I think it would be a nice addition but it requires some work.

Which other fields could benefit of inline edit?

Would be interested to know what it takes to hook in from a plugin and make this happen in the media library's grid view as of 4.0, as there is a separate bulk selection mode.
