I fully agree with this request, and would go even further:
Cloud attachments in Outlook and Webmail should not (try to) update permissions by default.
The default should be to send a "link" (identical to SharePoint Online's option, currently called 'Copy link').
The user can then, based on configuration settings, defaults and limitations set by admins, change the permissions for the link if necessary.
Right now one of the major issues of cloud attachments in Outlook is:
- the default will (try to) update the permissions to "organization can edit"
- this happens during composing of the e-mail, and sets the permissions even if the e-mail is never sent
- selecting 'change permissions' does NOT remove the edit-access for the entire organization
