doc/go1.15: rationalize runtime sections

Use the "Core library -> runtime" section for changes that affect the
runtime package API and use the top-level "Runtime" section for
package-independent behavior changes. Also, move the one change that's
really about os (and net) into the "os" package section and reword it
to be more accurate.

Updates #37419.
