Exclude Attachment Option for Package Map Tool

We are currently using the Package Map Feature  from the ArcCatalog Toolbox which has been a useful tool.
However we are also utilising the Feature Class Attachment option to store Work Order photos and field sketches etc.
These attachment table are now becoming a significant size (100’s MB).
When we Package a Map, the Feature Class Attachment data  is copied also and thus we are ending up with GB’s of extra data that is not required in most packages (Package is very slow to created and large in size).
I would request that an option is added in future releases of ArcMap Package Map tool so as to provide a option not to copy the feature class attachment data into the package as shown below.
Thank you,
