Submitter is allowed to add a document to a submittal when the submittal is not in their court

Tested adding an attachment while logged in as the Submitter. TEAM allows drag and drop to  to submittals in other persons court. Tested was Submitter adding files to a submittal in the Approver Court. If in another persons court letting another collaborator add files is questionable. No email notification was sent that a file was attached to the one in the Approver's court.

    We just ran into this problem as well. The only user who should be able to add attachments to a record is the person whose court it is in or a Project Editor. This could cause major problems if anyone on the record could add a file at any time after it's moved on to another reviewer.

    Somewhat related to this is that collaborators shouldn't have the ability to add files to a record that is closed. I've tried this twice and, while it throws various errors, the new version is still created. I was even able to change a file name as a collaborator after the record was closed. That seems problematic.
