Several sqlite3 methods are "marked" as non-standard in their docstrings. This is an historic artefact which (I assume) implies that a method is not a part of the DB-API defined by PEP 249. Questions regarding the "non-standard" strings arise from time to time, as the meaning is not immediately obvious.

The question surfaced in a code review in October 2021[^1], and again in a more recent PR[^2].

Suggesting to purge "non-standard" from all docstrings once and for all to avoid more confusion.

As one of the people confused by this wording, I agree with dropping it. There is no documentation that I can find that explains what "non-standard" means.

I'll leave the PR for some time though in case others have objections.
