It hadn't even been updated to the final DWARF4 spec. I've updated it
with the latest from the DWARF5 spec. I didn't bother with the .dwo
sections, since they're basically the same (in v5) as their
corresponding non-dwo sections.

I didn't add a column for DWARF6. I don't think we're close enough yet
to give any guidance there.
