In 2009, Google's open-source lawyers asked us to create the AUTHORS
file to define "The Go Authors", and the CONTRIBUTORS file was in
keeping with open source best practices of the time.

Re-reviewing our repos now in 2022, the open-source lawyers are
comfortable with source control history taking the place of the
AUTHORS file, and most open source projects no longer maintain

To ease maintenance, remove AUTHORS and CONTRIBUTORS from all repos.

For #53961.
