Currently when a user Opens an attachment in Notes, say a Word document, the temporary file Notes creates isn't read-only. This means the user could spend 5 hours making updates to the file in Word, hit Ctrl-S which saves changes to the temporary file. Then when they close the e-mail that contains the attachment Notes deletes the temporary file. All changes lost. This happens to us all the time.
If the file is marked as read-only on the file system, the host application will prompt the user for a new file to save the changes to. Most other e-mail applications handle attachments this way.
