I personally would not put it in the attic just because it's harder to access, but that's just me. If you can make it easier to access, or it already is, then that's less of an issue.

Do you know what code cycle your area is governed by? The 08 instituted a much greater coverage of AFCI's so depending what else you are doing with this panel, you may need a few more AFCI breakers.
The current version of the California Electric Code is the 2007 CEC which is based on the 2005 NEC.

the 05 NEC still required all outlets (not just receptacles) in a bedroom to be AFCI protected. Don't know how that works into California codes but that is NEC.
