"Nibbana to be attained" sounds oxymoron to me because Nibbana is the end of attainments (or the obsessive need to attain anything), and it it a good example of limitation of language/concepts to talk about what is beyond concepts, and of course there is a need to use different seemingly contradictory statements aimed towards people at different levels of understanding.

Nibbāna to be attained=Saupādisesanibbānadhātu.
Nibbāna to be end of born=Anupādisesanibbānadhātu.
