Re: [web-annotation] The textDirection and processingLanguage properties are not needed

My point is that there are unicode control characters that can already
 accomplish setting the base text direction. From

> The following example shows how these control characters could be 
used in plain text.

The example given is setting the base direction of the text in am HTML
 `title` attribute.

Having a separate property outside of the string itself for specifying
 the base text direction is fragile and will likely lead to loss of 
that information as it is propagated between systems.

My proposal is to drop the textDirection property and add a note 
recommending including the unicode control characters in the string if
 it is needed.
