I looked at the javadoc updates to the attach API.

One thing that doesn't come across very clearly is the mapping from the 
agentLibrary parameter to "agent-lib-name". I think that needs a few 
words so that it's clear that it is not literally looking for 
"Agent_OnAttach_agent-lib-name" but rather "Agent_OnAttach" + 
<agent-lib-name> where <agent-lib-name> is the library name in the 
agentLibrary parameter.

As I recall, the JVM Tool Interface is supposed to be referred so as 
"JVM TI" rather than "JVMTI".

Otherwise it looks okay to me.
