How to place an Attachment upload link in page, not just under the Attachments Macro list?

We have users who regularly need to quickly upload a file attachment to a page.
Is it possible to place an Attachment upload link as an independent element in a page?

For example: the Attachments Macro, when placed in a page provides the option to "Allow upload" so that there is a "Browse" button at the end of the list of Attachments allowing the user to upload another attachment to the list.

We would like to be able to place this Attachment Upload Browse button as an independent element in the page. Rather than always having to scroll down to the bottom of the list of attachments to be able to select the upload button. (If a large number of attachments are already listed here, this becomes very tedious to be able to regularly have to scroll all the way to the bottom to find the link.)

Any options for placing the Attachments Browse button independently in the page, or other alternatives would be appreciated.

Do you really need this? Or could it be more a matter of user training? Most modern browsers allow you to drag and drop an attachment onto a page.
