Working with Image Attribute Types

I’ve been messing around with the various image attribute inputs in the attributes section.

Could someone detail the differences / uses of Media Gallery and Gallery and how they are related?

I figured out Media Image which adds additional qualifying columns in admin. cool.

It appears that there can only be one Media Gallery in the admin panel. But there can be multiple Galleries. Each Gallery has the same Media Image Attributes even though they appear in the Attribute set only once.

So is there a specific/intended use for multiple galleries or is this just a glitch?

If it’s not a glitch how would I access the images of a given gallery in the view?
