Please fix default NZ rules komi for ranked 9x9 and 13x13

This has been brought up before, but not in a separate topic. (Not sure if it’s logged on GitHub, or how to do so.) Please fix default New Zealand rules komi for 9 x 9 and 13 x 13 ranked games from 5.5 to 7.0. (19 x 19 ranked games already have 7.0 komi by default.) This is separate from the issue of how OGS handles ranked ties (correctly, but only by moderator decision during the scoring phase; known issue with a promised fix in the indefinite future).

Footnote: KataGo as implemented on OGS shows that 5.5 Chinese komi clearly favours black for both 9 x 9 and 13 x 13. Under New Zealand rules, it being an area scoring ruleset like Chinese, 6.0 komi is equivalent to 7.0 komi since each intersection is worth two points.

Yeah, NZ scoring is totally broken :<
Its not just the wrong komis, but how integer komis is implemented. Issue has been raised many times during the years, but it looks like it hasnt been fixed yet.

Yeah, as I said, proper handling of ties is an unrelated issue that at least has a workaround (moderator decisions in the scoring phase). If komi for 9 x 9 and 13 x 13 were fixed, at least ties would become possible using the workaround.
