dev-manual, ref-manual: Review edits for new variables.
Applied review changes to the following variables: IMAGE_NAME DATETIME SDK_ARCH IMAGE_BASENAME TUNE_PKGARCH PACKAGE_GROUP COMPLEMENTARY_GLOB BUSYBOX_SPLIT_SUID Also, reformatted some 1.5 package version requirements into a list rather than a lazy literallayout tag. Provided some new wording for the "Directory Layout Changes" section in the Migration chapter.
