A tool to discover GATT attribute would be great, but Im afraid there 
could be some security problems with some services such as GAP as it 
is used to expose lower layer details of GAP over GATT there is always
 a risk that we don't blacklist something important, or the blacklist 
is outdated, and something gets leaked. Another observation I have is 
that GAP roles and GATT roles may not be related, you may have a GAP 
peripheral that acts as GATT client or a GAP central that is a GATT 
server, there also the possibility that the profile is not GATT based.
 e.g. uses a different L2CAP channel or only really uses advertising 
to broadcast something, in those cases there may be no service(s) to 
match and that should be ok.
