The following JEP is proposed to target JDK 21:
451: Prepare to Disallow the Dynamic Loading of Agents
Summary: Issue warnings when agents are loaded dynamically into a
running JVM. These warnings aim to prepare users for a future release
which disallows the dynamic loading of agents by default in order to
improve integrity by default. Serviceability tools that load agents at
startup will not cause warnings to be issued in any release.
Feedback on this proposal from JDK Project Committers and Reviewers 
is more than welcome, as are reasoned objections. If no such objections
are raised by 23:59 UTC on Wednesday, 31 May, or if they’re raised and
then satisfactorily answered, then per the JEP 2.0 process proposal 
I’ll target this JEP to JDK 21.
