TNC Update (2011-08-27)

The TOSEC Naming Convention (TNC) has been updated.

These corrections were mainly to add more info and examples, as well as clarify some recent 'date' issues. See below for full details:

Revision 3 (27/08/2011) changes:
- Introduction rewritten to be consistent with TOSEC website and Wiki page.
- Forbidden Characters section revised.
- References to "ZZZ-UNK-" rewritten to make it clear 'unknowns' should always be avoided (as well as a return to the more strict convention of "ZZZ-UNK-" rather than "ZZZ-UNK").
- Expanded examples in Version section.
- Expanded and gave proper descriptions to possible flags in Demo section.
- Year renamed to Date to better reflect the flag usage.
- Examples expanded in Date section, including making it clear '2000-01-0x' is an acceptable date.
- Added proper descriptions to Development Status Flag possibilities.
- Added proper descriptions to Media Type Flag possibilities.
- Dump Flags section greatly expanded to more accurately describe the purpose of each flag, as well as adding more examples and clarifications.
- Current Issues appendix moved to separate document since inappropriate to include in a published spec.
- Lots of general cleaning up and improvements to general language, punctuation and grammar.
