So in the case of docs, would it work better to include the document
in the body of the email itself? Initially I would expect short
documents to be the rule of thumb.

If somebody writes a tome too large for the body of email, perhaps
they could post a note to the list asking how to best handle it -- and
wouldn't that be cool!
