Many sections of the FAQ need tweaking, a few need replacement. Update before release.

For example, here's a question there that needs to be rethought: "Why does Go not have generic types?"

CL 374215 resolves this issue, but isn't to be submitted until Go 1.18 is released.

Since there's nothing more to do here during 1.18 cycle, moving to 1.19 and adding early-in-cycle. Actually, we also have issue #49938 tracking this task, so we can can close this one.
