Huge thanks for sharing this. It was actually a bug in the feature implementation (rules could "see" attachments only if the information about them was cached in memory), not in your db.

Ah, I see.
The 'ability to re-apply to selected notes on demand' sounds like the possibilities are expanded (and not dumbed down.)
But if the rule functionality were to come to fruition in a stable version, I would use it mainly to apply rules to all (existing) notes for a consistent experience. Like a saved search.
Well, this will definitely make applying rules more manual. You'll need to not forget about applying them.
Besides this, I think the rules dialog can be made more user-friendly, not sure how though. Perhaps by pre-listing the list of options (not crammed in a drop-down box) and pre-selecting the current section for the section condition.
About pre-selecting section - this is a good idea. I have also more ideas here: after one section is selected, it should be removed from the list in the alternative options. But this might introduce some nasty dependencies and ripple effects (chaning section in one place will require automatic changes in other places).
About list of options instead of dropdown - could you maybe illustrate the idea? Everything what comes to mind requires a lot of space.
