When you choose Reply, you have an option to change to Reply to All without having to lose what you entered and go back to the view/original message.  When you choose forward, which has become forward without attachments due to numerous requests (and I don't disagree), you do not have the option to change to forward with attachments, so if you realize you chose the wrong option you have to go back and start over again. 
I think this would be a nice addition to the mail template, as a consequence of the changed behavior with respect to the forward action.
Note:  This refers to 8.x

Great idea Rob. This would be great.

Yes. Someone@Lotus should be shot for even considering changing the behavior of Forward. Add functionality, yes you can do that, but leave everything working like it always has. Apps may depend on it...
