Could attachments be given meta information and made to work with pagelists?

What I have in mind is a way to make pagelist templates work better with 
images.  (Attached, and referenced by fully qualified address).  Perhaps 
that doesn't require meta information.  But maybe you can provide some 
guidance about whether something further is required to get pagelist 
templates to combine images in linking markup.

For example, if I want a pagelist to display thumbnails from image pages 
and have those thumbnails act as links to the image page, its not 
necessarily an easy or straightforward task: you can include images, 
style thumbnails, and make links in pagelist templates, but combining an 
image with a thumbnail appears to be tricky (at best).  Having failed to 
solve that, I ended up with a workaround where the thumbnails and their 
links are placed in the description page variable of every image page, 
which are then called by the template within a single div.
