[master] documentation updates

 Remove some references to experimental, development, prototype

 Mention that bind10 doesn't start the DNS or DHCP servers by default.
 Also reword a couple sentences so this is not implied.
 This is for ticket #2451.

This was not reviewed. The changes are minor.

This is the source for the development version of BIND 10.
This is the source for the BIND 10 suite.
BIND is the popular implementation of a DNS server, developer
interfaces, and DNS tools. BIND 10 is a rewrite of BIND 9 and ISC
DHCP. BIND 10 is written in C++ and Python and provides a modular
environment for serving, maintaining, and developing DNS and DHCP.
BIND10-devel is new development leading up to the production
BIND 10 release. It contains prototype code and experimental
interfaces. Nevertheless it is ready to use now for testing the
new BIND 10 infrastructure ideas.
This release includes the bind10 master process, b10-msgq message
bus, b10-auth authoritative DNS server (with SQLite3 and in-memory
backends), b10-resolver recursive or forwarding DNS server, b10-cmdctl
