Issue #3990: make the status of the XCF docs a bit clearer (hopefully).

Though it may have started as an unofficial document, it is clearly now
an official one (which should be obvious since it is in our source
repository, but apparently some people get misled by the historical
"Status" text to think this to be somehow unofficial).
So first of all, change the s/official/unofficial/ mention.

Secondly, add a small paragraph explicitly telling that the document is
complete (and meant to be), to the best of our knowledge. This document
is a detailed, full and exhaustive written "specification" of the XCF
format up to GIMP 2.10.x (even though the normative spec is still the
code itself). Now we are humans, we may have missed something, and if
so, this is just to be considered as any other bug, and reported to us
nicely to be fixed.

This specification is an unofficial condensation and extrapolation of
the XCF-writing and -reading code in version 2.10.0 of GIMP. Yet we
remind that the ultimate reference is the loading and saving code of the
XCF format.
This specification is an official condensation and extrapolation of
the XCF-writing and -reading code in version 2.10.14 of GIMP, and
earlier versions. Yet we remind that the ultimate reference is the
loading and saving code of the XCF format.
Some of the normative statements made below are enforced by the XCF
code in GIMP; others are just the authors' informed guess about
"best practices" that would be likely to maximize interoperability
with future versions of GIMP.
This document is complete, relatively to GIMP 2.10 features stored in
the XCF format, though if you discover any errors or missing features,
we would be thankful if you could report it as a bug:
