JFR event types documentation

First, thanks for building (and then open-sourcing) JFR, it is a great piece of diagnostic tooling.

In addition, the recent publication of the Flight Recorder API Programmer's Guide is also appreciated.

From the perspective of a user of the API, I'm missing an overall list of all event types, and their background.

For instance, when is the Method Profiling Sample Native event fired, and how does it relate to Method Profiling Sample?

I don't mind searching the *-dev mailing lists, or taking an occasional dive in the OpenJDK sources, but before doing so, I wanted to check if I missed something.

Thanks in advance,
