Support for remove_post_type_support() in attachment post type

In the past it was possible to remove certain fields from the media editor by hooking "attachment_fields_to_edit" and unset'ing the fields you didn't want included (e.g. caption).

After the media library got the major rework in WP3.5 its longer possible to remove those fields.

I believe that since the attachment post type has been more closely lined up to normal posts it should support remove_post_type_support() et al.

The easiest (and probably popular) case for this is removing the editor. I believe this code should do the trick:

remove_post_type_support( 'attachment', 'editor' );

I'd love to see this. I'd think that removing support for "caption", for example, would remove the caption field both from the media modal and also the edit media screen.
