[ModLib] time duration style 10

I have seen #10's from 1963 and 1964, but not after that.  ModernLib has been reluctant to change the language on that page, but I have managed to convince the editor to drop 'very' (it used to say "very shortlived") and add the note about it being transitional.  I believe the fact that #10's were printed in 1964 should be noted as well.

This is a transitional binding (not a real one; it is no different than the #14/9, #14/11, and #13/9 bindings we have seen, however, those are uncommon and the #10's are common, so they got the prestige of a number being applied to them... which is fine, the #10 binding deserves it).

> Another thing that has got me puzzled is that style 10 "In Use: later 1963
> (shortlived)" is getting a lot of entries. So either 1963 was a banner year
> for ML or this style might have a longer time period.
