internal/history: rename Version to GoVer

Make it more clear that this type represents a Go-specific version,
rather than a version that follows the Semantic Versioning 2.0.0
specification. The type already has Go-specific methods, for example
IsMajor reports true for "1.14" and IsMinor reports true for "1.14.1".
This is consistent with the terminology used by Go releases, but
very surprising if considered from the perspective of semver.

Document some differences of the Go-specific version convention
compared to semver, and describe the X, Y, Z fields in more detail.

This change makes it viable to add a String method to GoVer type
documented to print a Go-specific version string, which will be
useful in more places in CL 229483.

For golang/go#32450.
