The appropriate section of the netbeans README is:

    The external Tomcat instance must be started with its jvm enabled for
    debugging by adding extra arguments to JAVA_OPTS, e.g.
    -Xdebug -Xrunjdwp:transport=dt_socket,address=8000,server=y,suspend=n

This paragraph is (I think) ide-agnostic, and refers to setting up the 
server for debugging by any local or remote client.

I use nix and my is started by /etc/init.d/tomcatX, which 
primes JAVA_OPTS when I want debugging. I've just checked 
and noticed there are four JPDA_* parameters too.

My first thought is to leave the README alone. Anyone wanting to use 
netbeans to debug tomcat on a different host ought not to be spoon-fed. 
On the other hand, given the comment is related to a change where by 
default tc will not listen on any interface except lo, perhaps I should 
say so in the README. How far is far enough? wdyt?
