XF 2.2 How is attachment quotas not a basic feature?

I've had to add over 100gb to my servers in the past year, 50gb since February, and am running out of disk space again because I have prolific posters who are uploading image after image into the attachment system and have no way to throttle it.


This is one example. This user has 7k attachments in the system, with the majority of them being well over 500k each. I have multiple users like this.

Is there a reason why the Media Gallery has a quota system and the attachment system does not? Currently almost no one uses the media gallery, they just attach images directly into threads. There's no reason I should have users with multiple gigabytes of image uploads, including duplicates, and no way to control or monitor this short of cutting off attachments altogether.
