#55: Clarify that the newest pinning information takes precedence

 In section "Interactions With Preloaded Pin Lists", we need to specify
 that the newest information, even "stop pinning", must take precedence. I
 propose this text:

 UAs MUST use the newest information — built-in or set via Valid Pinning
 Header — when performing Pin Validation for the host. If the result of
 noting a Valid Pinning Header is to disable pinning for the host (such as
 because the host set a max-age directive with a value of 0), UAs MUST
 allow this new  nformation to override any built-in pins. That is, a host
 must be able to un-pin itself even from built-in pins.
