[RFA] [doc] thread-created/thread-exited

This patch documents the thread-create and thread-exited MI notification.
It also fixes the terminology as bit -- the grammar say that out-of-band
record is either async record or stream record, whereas the following docs
first describe stream records and then talk about async records, but call
them out-of-band.
