Temporary, extended scrutiny for the informative whitebacking tolerances

Following the discussion in the mailing list of the Digital Printing Working Group (May 2018), we agreed to extend the assessment of the suitability of proofing papers as a whitebacking, and from now on will check according to both, the tolerances as stated in ISO 13655:2009 as well as in the revised ISO 13655:2017. In the database, for now a proof paper is listed as "suitable as whitebacking" if it passes according to the old tolerances.
