I18N-ISSUE-172: Direction should be set on title and body separately [Notifications]

Raised by: Addison Phillips
On product: Notifications

This issue is being created to track the additional issue of adding a direction attribute in Web Notifications. I18N Issue #162 previously discussed much of this.

In http://www.w3.org/2012/07/25-i18n-minutes.html#item07 and at least one previous call, the I18N Core WG felt that each field in a Notification needs to have a separate direction attribute (consistent with our guidance on other specifications). Setting base direction is important/imperative in getting proper display of bidirectional mixed-direction text. Although Web Notifications has proposed a 'direction' attribute, it was assigned at the Notification level. We feel that the direction should be an attribute of each text-bearing field separately rather than a global value.
