We shouldn’t call v9 and v10 files “nonstandard”

I really do not see the point of calling v9 and v10 files non-standard, as done in this edit. There is no standards committee who defines what a Z-machine file is, and with most new development happening with Glulx, there should not be anyone who will make a Z-machine file which conflicts with Aimfiz’s v9 and v10 extensions.

I have created the article Z-machine versions to keep track of the various versions of Z machine files and have removed the designation of the v9 and v10 files as being “nonstandard”.

While there isn’t a standards committee, there is a specification, so I have added this disclaimer: “These versions are not described in the 1997 Z-machine specification 1.0 nor in the 2006 Z-machine specification 1.1 (the most recent version)”. Samiam 01:02, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
