I wouldn't mind a lot more discussion about class file artifacts like attributes. The API javadoc seems like the best place for this. But the status quo is to be vague, and if we're going to raise the bar on precision in reflection API documentation, that's best handled as an independent, holistic effort.

I agree, subject to priorities and who has time to work on what.
Let’s file a tracking issue for this, shall we?
That’s probably the best way to stabilize a consensus.
