Re: [web-annotation] Replace textDirection property with recommendation for including control characters in the text

We can't assume that everything is in Unicode, and storing this 
information within the Annotation document does help with selection as
 @gsergiu points out. It should not go on the selector itself, as that
 would only effect the direction of selected text and say nothing 
about the original documents text direction.

Given that we can't assume Unicode for external resources, we should 
keep `textDirection` as proposed. Implementors are more than welcome 
to use Unicode control characters within Embedded Textual Bodies as 
@azaroth42 points out.
