update documentation of module versioning

Since x/ repos are now automatically periodically tagged, the previous
definition of the minor and patch versions of this module are now
obsolete. Delete that section of the README; regular semantic versioning
rules apply here.

Fixes golang/go#57089

 This repository holds supplementary Go libraries for text processing, many involving Unicode.
-## Semantic Versioning
-This repo uses Semantic versioning (, so
-1. MAJOR version when you make incompatible API changes,
-1. MINOR version when you add functionality in a backwards-compatible manner,
-   and
-1. PATCH version when you make backwards-compatible bug fixes.
-Until version 1.0.0 of x/text is reached, the minor version is considered a
-major version. So going from 0.1.0 to 0.2.0 is considered to be a major version
-A major new CLDR version is mapped to a minor version increase in x/text.
-Any other new CLDR version is mapped to a patch version increase in x/text.
+## CLDR Versioning
 It is important that the Unicode version used in `x/text` matches the one used
 by your Go compiler. The `x/text` repository supports multiple versions of
