Making the identifier identification strawman less restrictive

I'm concerned about the latest version of this on the wiki. The
edition parameter requires that we ship 2 tables today. This seems
like it might change to 3 in ES7 and n in ES(n+4). I think the only
reasonable requirement is that it matches what the engine actually
uses. For tools it seems better for them to include this table. I
don't want all runtimes to have to pay for something that only tools
