Subject [4/6] kudu git commit: [docs] Add note about lack of versioning column

[docs] Add note about lack of versioning column

Probably because of overlaps with HBase, users often ask if Kudu
provides a version or timestamp column. We don't, and we don't plan to,
so let's add a note telling users to provide their own such column.
