get_post_type returns attachment as a searchable post type

I don't think get_post_type() should return the attachment post type as a searchable post type, because it doesn't show up in the search results.

In other words, this code snippet returns post and attachment and I think this is wrong...

$post_types = get_post_types( array( 
	'public' => true,
	'publicly_queryable' => true,
	'exclude_from_search' => false,
	'show_ui' => true,
	'hierarchical' => false
) );

The post type attachment is not registered with 'exclude_from_search' => false, and it can be used in search results too. So this is the correct behavior.
